Single Trail Paperchase
The cult event on 08 June 2019
It's definitely the "tastiest" event of the enduro scene: the Single Trail Paperchase event presented by Rasenmäher Karen Eller and Holger Meyer. The teams of two have to choose their favorite trail routes, find the checkpoints and fulfill tricky missions. Tactical skill, good orientation and an excellent mood are required. There is no prize money in this everyman & women competition but you fight for the "Giant Golden Schnitzel", sponsored prizes and - of course - a great party.
The most tasty Bike Event in Sölden
One of the most iconic events of the biking scene as the hunting ground is brimming with fine trails and ultimate challenges: The Single Trail Paperchase presented by the team of "Rasenmäher Karen Eller & Holger Meyer" will open the 2019 BIKE REPUBLIC SÖLDEN season.
The Race: A classic scavenger hunt on mountain bikes. Enduro bikers have to put together their trail route themselves after starting at Gaislachkogl peak, using their brain and their legs' stamina. They must find certain checkpoints where challenges of a special kind await them. It's all about tactical skill, good orientation and a great mood.
The Teams: Teams of two or three are at the start - there are several classes: women, men and mixed.
The Prize: The winning team receives the highly coveted "Giant Golden Schnitzel": hands up in the air! But of course delicacies are served all day long: a feast for the eyes thanks to the breathtaking Ötztal mountain scenery and also for the bikers' palate in many Alpine huts.
The Party: Together with all other Bike Opening visitors, there will be a big party in the evening - including prize giving ceremony, non-cash prize draw presented by partners and sponsors plus entertaining live music.
The 275 coveted starting places will be drawn by lot this year. Please register between 01 and 28 February 2019 - the winners will be officially notified on 08 March 2019.
