For the 5th time KOPŘIVNÁ BIKE FESTIVAL
took place in beautiful venue of Kopřivná Resort in foothills of Jeseníky. Whole weekend is all about testing bikes from various brands, racing in different competitions and having a good time on trails.
On friday evening the parking lot filled up with colorful tents, flags and bikes from brands like Specialized
, Rock Machine
that waited for the upcoming morning to start the test fest.
You could try out all sorts of enduro, trail and e-bikes. So there was plenty of fun for the whole day.
Kopřivná Bike Festival is not only about testing different bikes. There were also plenty of competitons for riders of all levels.
First race of the day was Electro Uphill where riders raced up the hill and then down the rough trail, the fastest one wins!
During the day and in between the main racers there were bunny hop and manual contest.
Before the main race of the day which was Dual Slalom there were Jump Jam & Whip Off Contest. Riders took no mercy of the jump and pulled the best tricks from their pockets.
Next up was the Dual Slalom which is very attractive discipline for racers and audiences as well. Young riders showed their racing spirit in kid´s category.
Right after kids there grown ups went on the track and took care of the best racing moments of the weekend.
Last race of the day was the Fun Night Race. Riders put their lights on and raced down the longest track at Kopřivná Bike Park trying to be as fast as they could in the dark forest.
Full day of racing and testing bikes is over. We bet that every one had a great time testing and talking bikes. As you read there were plenty of racers to entertain riders who came to compare their racing skills and the best thing there is one more day. On Sunday the main race was Furious Downhill, group start and race down the course who can be fastest.
And that´s all folks. The Kopřivná Bike Festival is over with the sun over our heads the whole weekend we saw only happy faces. Thank you all who come as we hope we´ll see you next year again.
