The impression, when 777 bikers plunge from the Parpaner Rothorn toward the 1636 m lower destination Churwalden, are impressive and legendary. The track has a decrease of 1800 altitude meters and a rise of 180 altitude meters and is both conditional and technically challenging. Who wants to ride in the front, has to prove himself in the rugged boulders, in technical passages, in the short opposing ascent and on the flowing sections. The number of participants for the Bike Attack is limited to 777.
The legendary Enduro race exists since 1998 in Lenzerheide and is now well known far over the Swiss borders. The Bike Attack has decisively shaped the "mass start-enduro" format and convinces the participants with a breathtaking track since the first race.
In the last twelve years, Trek has been the main sponsor of the Bike Attack. Now the American bicycle company has not extended the 3-year contract due to the strategic realignment in the Enduro area. "It was an exciting and wonderful time in Lenzerheide and we would like to thank the OC and all those involved for many years of good and professional cooperation" confirms Guido Anderwert, Marketing Manager, Trek DACH.
For us, the going of Trek is no reason to put our head in the sand. We are currently looking for a new main sponsor and are confident that the event will take a step further next summer with a new partner.
We are looking forward to giving you more details about the future of the Bike Attack! Stay tuned ...
