Swiss Enduro Series

Airolo - 27 and 28 August 2022

THE RACE

On August 27 and 28 the first and only Ticinese stage of the Swiss Enduro Series, the professional MTB enduro series in Switzerland, will take place in Airolo!

Dear mountainbiker friends, here we go: on August 27 and 28 we will have an enduro race in Airolo for the first time!
Building on the efforts made in recent years to improve MTB offerings, we are now happy to be able to bring a major event such as the final stage of the SES enduro circuit to the trails of the Airolo Bike Park!

For us, it's quite an achievement to be included in this calendar alongside destinations of the caliber of Lenzerheide and Laax ... but it's definitely a great opportunity for you as well to admire the enduro champions whizzing around the trails, experience firsthand all the excitement of these days and why not, try to steal the tricks of the trade!

What does the race consist of?

  • 4 stages - the exact course path will be announced one week before the event
  • The time of each participant is measured and added up
  • The competitor with the fastest overall time wins
  • Different categories: pro and amateur, different ages
  • Each race lasts 2 days: 1 day of training and 1 day of competition

Given the great commitment that hosting such an event requires, we are happy to be able to collaborate with the Velo Club Bellinzona in organizing the only Ticino stage of the SES circuit.

 

 

THE VILLAGE

At the start of the Airolo cableways we will set up the village of the event, for two days of entertainment, gastronomy, music and lots of fun!

Throughout the weekend, RideAlps.ch guides will be available to take you by e-Bike to some strategic points near the routes from the race, allowing you to admire the athletes' descents up close.

In the village you can also enjoy some good live music! On Saturday, from 3 to 6 p.m., Ticino rock band One More will perform on the stage near the Chièuna. The next day, at the same venue, from 2 to 5 p.m. it will be the turn of students from the RockID music school to rock the village.

Don't miss the "Pump Track Challenge" that will be held Saturday from 5 to 6 p.m. on the parking lot at the cable car departure. About ten male and female athletes participating in the SES race will compete in a speed race.

For the occasion, a pavilion equipped with a buvette, grill and other gastronomic offerings will be set up near the bar la Chièuna.
