On tour by mountain bike: BFFT on the Day of the Bike 2016
Numerous biking fans were able to swing onto their mountain bikes on 10th September and demonstrate their know-how when the 13th Day of the Bike took place in Wettstetten. Open to all from aspiring mountain bikers to spare-time enthusiasts, more than 200 showed up under summertime temperatures and beaming sunshine.
Before the mountain bike racing started, the younger age classes were given the opportunity to demonstrate their mountain biking skills over an abbreviated course around Högnerhäusl (Högner’s cottage). The performances of the ten riders who showed up at the starting line with only unicycles were also impressive.
At 2:00 pm, it was time for the main race during which a demanding circuit had to be negotiated 7 times. In the process, 37.38 kilometers (23.2 miles) had to be covered and 686 meters (2,250 feet) had to be climbed.
Again this year, BFFT was on the scene in the role of partner of “Day of the Bike” and supported the event with, among other things, the preparation of branding resources along the route. In addition, BFFT went to the starting line with some mountain bikers of its own. The fastest of them, with a total time of 1 hour, 39 minutes, 41 seconds even captured a spot in the Top-25.
