WENGEN – The goal is, to climb each track from bottom to top in the fastest possible way – while it doesn’t matter how – there are hardly any rules! Choice of gear, line on the track is up to the racers, as long as no motorised help is included. The Speed class has to stick to the original World Cup track; the Hobby Racers can choose to go on easier detours. The winning concept will be a combination of endurance, technical skills and well-chosen gear!
The final Tourstop of the Vertical Up Tour 2017 will take part on the March 25th, in Wengen (SUI).
The 2 categories are Hobby- and Speed class.
The concept in the Hobby Class is fairly simple – Fun and Games. Each Racer finishes the course in their individual time and choice of gear, only condition: Each racer has to carry their own backpack with filling, which has to be carried to the finish! The timing will be in alphabetical order; the winner is the closest time to the total average time. The speed class is the royal discipline of the event. The athletes will have to climb up the original line of the World Cup downhill tracks – again with free choice of gear – unless motor powered. The result will consider the fastest female and male rankings and will be rewarded with prize- money.
