Speedster Map

Speedster is a 2.3 km long track which demands the best riding technique. The combination of steep fall line sections, rugged roots, tight sweeps and fast passages make the heart of every downhill racer beat faster. This course is not for the faint of hearted. Several iXS European and World DH Cups have been ridden on it in the past few years, including Aaron Gwin´s famous win on a bike without a chain. Speedster boasts an elevation drop of 480 meters and should be reserved solely for riders who crave adrenaline.
