New in the TrailTrophy programme for 2021 is Brandnertal in the beautiful Voralberg. Here, in addition to the best cheese spaetzle in the world, we find a breathtaking alpine panorama that will make you dream.
In addition to these cultural highlights, the perfect infrastructure of the mountain railways and the routes in the bike park await you for an Enduro weekend in a class of its own.

We start in the village of Brand, which, like Bürserberg, lies in the heart of the Rätikon group. The village cable car, the panorama cable car and the Loischkopf cable car in combination make it possible to reach the stages quickly. In the bike park - so far probably better known to downhill fans - the stages offer a lot of variety. Sometimes very flowing, then steep and peppered with technical features. Names like "Tschäckie Tschan" or "Tscharlie Tschäplin" give an idea of the character of the tracks. In addition to the bike park, you can also use your own muscle power to ride the single trails around the Loischkopf with the most beautiful views.

We are already looking forward to the premiere of the TrailTrophy Brandnertal. A new highlight for sure, with long stages for all tastes.

PROGRAMME

(see schedule for further details)

Friday 09. July 2021
The TrailTrophy Brand starts on Friday with a voluntary course inspection. The compulsory training, which may be arranged for particularly difficult stages, can also be done on Friday. You can pick up your start number between 10 am and 3:30 pm. From 16:00 o'clock there will be the first action at the prologue.

Saturday 10. July 2021
TrailTrophy Brand officially gets underway at 12.00 pm. Even before the start you still have time to do your compulsory training. The first day’s riding at TrailTrophy brings with it around 25 km of trails to overcome. It may not sound like much, but the devil is in the details: 5-6 time trials demanding clean, concentrated riding and plenty of stamina. By the end of the day you’ll have racked up around 750-900 vertical metres after which it’s down to the event site for some beers.

Sunday 11. July 2021
The Day No. 2, essentially the second stage of the TrailTrophy, starts just after 08:30 am for the slowest riders from the previous day. This is followed by a further 5 stages on the Loischkopf, totalling around 18-20 km and about 500-600 vertical metres. Once the last riders cross the finish line the results will be quickly calculated and amazing prizes distributed to the winners (and runners up).
