As preparations for the epic anniversary edition are running on full throttle, Erzbergrodeo mastermind Karl Katoch lays some new cards on the table for 2019. "We are currently planning on a new and extended race track for the Red Bull Hare Scramble which will overshadow everything we've done so far. By doing so we are reacting on the constantly rising skill level of Xtreme Enduro and can implement new visitor areas for the fans, making the intense action even more tangible. The Erzbergrodeo XX5 will become an unforgettable experience for all competitors and visitors.", Katoch claims.
New visitor shuttle bus routes and even more Live-action
For 2019 the race promotors are paying particular attention to extended services for visitors. "The Erzbergrodeo XX5 will not only be a true highlight for the competitors. In addition to the spectacular side events held in the Interwetten Action Arena, all new shuttle bus routes and extended visitor areas at the Red Bull Hare Scramble will offer a highly impressive experience to all visitors. Fans will be able to see the intense racing action at close hands.", explains Mark Schilling, the Erzbergrodeo's head of organisation.
