Track and the event area
The start is by the front slopes and one lap is about 12 km. We might be changing the track slightly in case the melting water and snow have done some severe damage.
After the start the track leads past ZeroPoint. The first couple of hundred meters are on gravel-sand bedding until the road leads to a narrow path.
After a stony path the track leads to a bicycle lane which is about 600m long. After this part the road climbs up to a narrow path which leads to a wide sand road. After crossing the road the track continues on the roadside from where the competitor has to make a tight turn to the forest machine tracks.
The track turns into a ski track which leads to a wide sand road. This road leads towards the gondola which has to be passed from the left side. There is a service point by the gondola. From there the track continues on a dirt-track which turns again to a forest machine track. The road continues past the lifts no. 13&14. From here the track crosses the road which leads to the top. After a while there is a wooden bridge.
The track passes the front slopes and continues up to the Kids land. From there the track leads to a dirt-track followed by a tight turn. The end of the track leads again back to ZeroPoint.
The whole track includes all kinds of terrain: Sand roads, narrow paths, stony parts, wooden bridges, duckboards, asphalt and dirt-tracks.
