MTB Festival thrills the crowds

Hundreds of people taking part in the Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis MTB Festival were, quite simply, blown away. On the one hand, this was of course down to the slick organisation and action-packed events which ran without a hitch, on the other hand, the region was at its most enchanting, sparking enthusiasm for mountain bike holidays.

The first few days saw the young heroes of the Rookie Camp fighting hard for the quickest time and best line. Event no. 1 was ‘Family Challenge’, in which a family member’s time was added to that of the Rookie; Reiner Göweil and Rookie Jonas Göweil were delighted with their win. Centre stage on Saturday and Sunday were the ‘iXS International Rookies Championships’, at which the unofficial world champions were crowned. 270 young talents from 24 nations battled it out for the title of champion in the age groups U13, U15, U17 and U19. With the sun beating down, there were some thrilling head-to-heads. The ideal conditions made for a fair competition on very dusty but perfect trails.
