The race / Infos

What could be more fitting: The overall winner of the 2020 Alpine Enduro Series powered by SANTA CRUZ will be crowned at Kronplatz (literally: crown place)! The trails of the Kronplatz region - sometimes completely natural, sometimes perfectly shaped – are a perfect scene for the final . Some of the start lines can be reached by bike, others with a comfortable gondola ride. At the Kronplatz region the number of trails increases from year to year – therefore you can expect new trails in 2020 as well. The scene at Kronplatz offers lots of metres descent – and the trails are changing from highspeed sections to rooty sections with tight corners within a few metres. As in the whole series: The overall winner must be a rider with skills on all terrains and conditions!
