The Snow Bike Festival is back! Recently reaccredited by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) as a “Stage Race Class 1” race, this renowned event is one of only 20 stage races worldwide to be classified as such a highly ranked event, as well as the only one that takes place on snow. There are various new innovations planned for the 2019 edition to elevate the rider experience and truly make it a once in a lifetime race. Some of the special planned highlights include: The location of the finish village moving into the centre of Gstaad and the start on Rinderberg at 2’000 meters altitude, with a downhill of more than 1’000 meters in altitude taking place on a ski slope.
The Snow Bike Festival is a 4-day mountain biking stage race that takes place in the snow covered Swiss Alps. The event has seen competitors from across the globe congregate in the stunning region of GSTAAD (SUI), creating a genuinely international atmosphere.
The world’s first UCI (Union Cycliste Internationale) race on snow sees professional mountain bikers and aspiring amateurs from around the world head to the trails and slopes around GSTAAD, to compete in one of the most unique mountain biking environments in the world.
The next edition of the Snow Bike Festival will take place in GSTAAD from January 24th to 27th 2019.
