The sale for the mountain bike event MONDRAKER ENDURO TEAM – formerly Mondraker Enduro2 – in Davos Klosters, Switzerland, which will take place for the fourth time already from 3 to 5 September 2020, has started extremely successful: In the first month after registration opening, more than two thirds of the starting places for the established team enduro fun race were already sold. Particularly pleasing: More than 20 teams have already registered in the completely new open category FUN TEAM of 3 to 6 people, unprecedented in Enduro mountain biking. The event will soon be sold out. If you want to be there too, you have to register as soon as possible..
MONDRAKER ENDURO TEAM is one of the few Enduro races for teams in Europe and is accordingly popular in the international mountain bike scene. More than 300 starting places have already been sold for next year's event, and the number is increasing every day. Already in the last few years, the fun event, which has a clear focus on pleasure and camaraderie on the best trails around the destination of Davos Klosters, has been sold out quickly. "The number of participants is limited by the capacity of the mountain railways we use in the race", explains Britta Wild from the organising committee. "450 riders is the absolute maximum our infrastructure can handle." So anyone who still wants to register for the fourth MONDRAKER ENDURO TEAM must be quick.
New category FUN TEAM for teams of 3 to 6 people popular
"Of course, we are especially pleased that the new open category FUN TEAM for teams of 3 to 6 people is apparently popular", Britta Wild continues. "More than 80 riders in more than 20 mixed teams are already registered." In this completely new category FUN TEAM, which has never been seen before in Enduro mountain biking, teams of at least 3 to a maximum of 6 people ride together, with free choice of gender composition and team size. The measured times simply count from the first rider crossing the starting line to the last one crossing the finish line. True to the motto "even more fun for bikers by bikers", the idea of camaraderie is even more in the focus here.
Women's teams, come in!
In addition to the conceptually new FUN TEAM category, the proven categories for teams of two, MEN and 77+, as expected, are already very well booked too. "We are pleased to welcome many returnees here. For some teams of two, participation in MONDRAKER ENDURO TEAM seems to become a tradition," Britta Wild is delighted. The MIXED category is also slowly filling up. "Unfortunately, the WOMEN category is still somewhat understaffed," Britta Wild regrets. "Ladies, come on! We would like to have a few more women’s teams with us!"
The most attractive trails in the best company
In total, the MONDRAKER ENDURO TEAM riders cover around 120 kilometres, climb almost 1500 metres and descend some 12,000 metres. As in a real enduro race, several stages, i.e. timed sections, are ridden each day. These mainly lead downhill and last a few minutes each. Between these descents, the participants cover various transfer sections without time measurement, often supported by mountain railways. This allows time to enjoy the impressive alpine scenery of the Grisons mountains or to chat with other race participants and cultivate the international bike community. "Our goal is to show experienced mountain bikers from all over the world the most beautiful trails of the destination Davos Klosters in the best company", Britta Wild sums up. Last year, 24 nations from all continents were represented. The trails are varied and attractive – but sometimes also technically demanding, as they are only alpine, natural trails and no men-built flowtrails. A certain level of mountain bike riding therefore is necessary to have a lot of fun at MONDRAKER ENDURO TEAM.
The entry fees, with CHF 405 for teams of two and CHF 699 for FUN TEAMS of 3 to 6 persons, are extremely moderate. The price includes welcome drink, team start numbers, timekeeping, results service, mountain railway ticket for 3 days, lunch on Friday and Saturday as well as the ENDURO TEAM Night. In addition to the race, MONDRAKER ENDURO TEAM participants can book an all-inclusive package with overnight accommodation and additional nights at extremely attractive conditions in various accommodation classes. The detailed offers will be available from spring.
