Cross Country track

The Cross Country track was raced for the first time at the BMC Racing Cup 2014. After three rounds of the UCI MTB World Cup, it is considered technically and physically demanding. The best conditions for exciting races are the many overtaking opportunities.

The 4 km long route leads from the Bike Arena in front of the Rothorn valley station south through the Seewald forest and north into the Tgapalotta area. South and North loop offer many clear points from which the race can be experienced firsthand.

Downhill track

The STRAIGHTline was planned and built by Trailworks, in collaboration with downhill legend Steve Peat.

The 2.5 km track is fast with technical key points and spectacular jumps. Spectator magnets include the #fullgas jump, the «plunge» drop and the action-loaded finish line.
