The very first "race" of the Red Bull Erzbergrodeo traditionally starts in front of the computer screens as ambitious Enduro athletes try to get hold of one of the 1500 entry spots available.

New track layouts and World Championship status

Despite the COVID-19 situation, the ongoing ore mining and further technical modernisations have significally changed the face of the iron mountain since 2019. “Our first track inspections during the summer have shown that we need to add new track sections for both the Blakläder Iron Road Prologue as well as for the Red Bull Erzbergrodeo.”, Karl Katoch explains.

At the Blakläder Iron Road Prolog more than 1500 riders take on the challenge to fight the gnarly gravel racetrack up to the Erzberg’s peak. On two days of racing, riders have the chance to burn their fastest possible run time into the Iron Giant. Only the 500 fastest riders qualify to participate in the Grande Finale of Red Bull Erzbergrodeo. “The basic characteristic of the Prologue’s racetrack stays the same, but we will add some new benches to the track for 2022. High speed racing and perfect riding technique in the turns will once again determine who’s winning or losing.”, Red Bull Erzbergrodeo track manager Wolfgang Thaller describes the challenges of the spectacular qualifying race.

On Sunday, the 500 qualified starters will be served with the true highlight of the weekend. The Red Bull Erzbergrodeo is worldwide regarded as the toughest and most prestigious race of the Hard Enduro calendar, with only a handful of riders reaching the finish line after a grueling 4 hours of intense racing. “The 2022 Red Bull Erzbergrodeo racetrack will be a real highlight in it’s 26 years of history. Both skill level and difficulty level remain unchanged, but we will add some new challenges to the more than 35 kilometers long track. Only the best of the best will reach the finish, the Red Bull Erzbergrodeo will remain a real test of mental strength, riding skills and endurance for the competitors.”, Katoch states.

Red Bull Erzbergrodeo will finally be a part of the FIM Hard Enduro World Championship in 2022, adding some major uproar to the series. Next year the World Championship calendar features 9 spectacular Hard Enduro races in Israel, Serbia, Austria, Italy, Romania, the USA, Canada, Poland and Spain. Red Bull Erzbergrodeo will also be broadcasted Live on Red Bull TV and ServusTV in 2022.
