The bike training route is a technically demanding circuit. It was created thanks to the «Bike-Rennen Goms», which is considered an event of a special kind among the insiders of the cross country scene. In the fast pace the biker sweeps over juicy mountain meadows and tricky singletrails in the sloping mountain forest.
