The last gondola just carried the last riders to the top of the mountain and already the date is set for the next White Style. For everyone who is depressed about having to stow away their bike for winter, there is a silver lining. Winter doesn’t have to be endured without any bike action because on January 28th the White Style in Leogang is celebrating its five-year anniversary! The kick off event for the coming season is the perfect opportunity for the stars and aspiring stars of the international freeride mountain bike scene to show their latest tricks.
This past season was more successful than any other for Leogang; for the first time, the cable car transported more than 100,000 bikes! But the bikepark is not planning to rest on its laurels. Even if summer is barely gone, the preparations for the exceptional winter event are already in full swing. Just like this year, the jumps are not to be underestimated. On obstacles built purely from wood and snow the riders will really be able to let off some steam and blow away the audience. Every year, it is at the White Style that we find out which new tricks or trick combinations the different riders have been working on over the winter months to try and win the coming season’s summer events. Not just the sickest trick combinations, but also the perfect event organization will once again be sure to attract many visitors to snow-covered Leogang.
After Sam Pilgrim from the UK was able to convince the jury this year, next year everything is possible again and we will definitely witness an exciting battle for the first place. Either way, the White Style is a great way to bridge the otherwise contest-free winter months and should put you in the mood to get back on your bike tearing down the Leogang trails this coming season!
