18th - 22nd September 2019
TRAILLOVE - Alpine Mountain Bike Festival
The love for trails unites all mountainbikers. If it wasn’t for the love of trails, mountainbikers wouldn’t spend so much time outdoors in shitty weather, endure so many abrasions and rather spend their money on a new helmet than a new tie. We are going to celebrate the love for trails from September 18th to 22nd with the TRAILLOVE - Alpine Mountainbike Festival in Zermatt.
The final round of the Enduro World Series is the main event of the festival. But besides cheering for the world’s fastest enduro racers, TRAILLOVE offers a lot more. Starting with the new bike adventure TRAILLOVE Derby as an epic way to explore the trails around Zermatt, followed by Chasing Cancellara Zürich - Zermatt as the ultimate challenge for all road bikers.
In the brandvillage exhibitors show their latest bikes, gadgets and accessories. Kids can play and bike under supervision and participate in their first mountainbike race during the TRAILLOVE Family Day. The festival village will offer plenty of local foods and beverages and those of you who like to party can go wild at the TRAILLOVE X EWS Party on Saturday night. Come to Zermatt and celebrate the love for trails with us! #welovetrails
