Happy New Year to all of you from the 2016 EuroMTB organization in Huskvarna, Sweden! We wish 2017 to be the best year...
Soon, when the National teams are announced, we will get back with more insights and what to look out for every event day, riders to keep an eye on (and our Swedish hopes) and more. But let´s get through the basics to start with. Looking into the Event program you see abbreviations such as XCR, XCE and XCO. What does this mean? (Här finns den på svenska!)
To start with the Championship is about Cross-Country (XC) mountainbiking. It´s the most common discipline within mountainbike (Olympic status since 1996) and the tracks used is a mix of rough forest paths and singletrack up and down the mountain. It includes both built or natural technical complex obstacles such as drops, jumps and rocketgardens. All of the above is true about the track at the Euromtb!
Also find some of the rider profiles to keep an eye out for. And the full entry list. Exact startlists to be given later. Also find Venue information and information on parking/logistics and food available on venue.
Further down we will go into detail about the cross country race-disciplines during Euromtb in Huskvarna! And if you are not i Sweden, bad luck but you could always join us in our broadcasting.
