|The XC track - go on attack!|
Heubach offers an extra class course to licensed mountain bikers. At 4.3 km the course demands all drivers to the limit.
Condition and strength at the increases. Courage and driving skill in the extra difficult descents.
Those who are trying here must master all aspects of mountain biking perfectly. The track builders created in consultation with racers, land owners and the Nature Conservancy Authority a route that – after numerous requests and countless hours of work – can be seen.
It starts in the „Stellung” on a ground that the drivers only very briefly enjoy – asphalt. Because it end just after the first sharp curve and there begins an unbelievable increase. Initially 170 meters at the height piece, 1.5 km long, extremely steep and in the middle two narrow turns. If someone is still sitting in the bike then he/she deserves a few level meters to the „Wanderparkplatz”. Then there is a more moderate increase further upwards. However, the pace will be tightened at the „SAV-Hütte”, as surely nobody will turn in the subsequent downhill last. This one leads from the „Kinderfestplatz” trough the „Bones Valley”. Narrow curves, steep sections, rocks and trees demand power and concentration. After that the bikers should use the few level meters to revitalize themselves. Because then leads a steep Z to „Zorro Drop”, where the bikers need lots of courage to race down - braking does not much assist! There splash the adrenaline from the ears of the riders and the fire from the eyes of the audience. After the last piece downhill through the Expo area to the start – finish area also the toughest racers will hardly feel their forearms and probably do no longer know whether to laugh or cry.
In any case – we wish much fun on the next round!
