Stoke, speed and suspense! Check out the highlights of last year’s MTB-Festival Serfaus Fiss Ladis:
3,2,1...The downhill craziness in Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis is about to kick-off! Riders looking to feel the adrenaline rush of flying down tracks and racing just like their idols such as Aaron Gwin, Greg Minnaar or Rachel Atherton, will feel right at home during the MTB-Festival Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis
. For a whole week, families and racers are guaranteed lots of fun and furious racing.
In order to be fully prepared for the Specialized Rookies Cup and the iXS International Rookies Championships, the Kona Rookie Camp
will once again take place during the MTB-Festival Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis. The next generation of downhill elite racers will learn from the best coaches, who will not only share valuable riding tips but also provide hands-on racing experience. In addition, camp participants will be able to share experiences, meet old riding buddies and make new friends, all while shredding in and outside of the bike park.
It’s not just about racing at the camp though, it’s also about everything that surrounds preparing to put down your best time on challenging tracks – mental preparation, bike maintenance and service, the proper warm-up routine and techniques – it’s all there. Young and old can look forward to plenty of side-events and happenings – like a BBQ, Yoga classes, the Family Challenge, a Pumptrack Fun Session, good music and much more.
New this year is the Five Ten Kids Cup, especially for the youngest generation of racers. All bike-stoked kids between the ages of five and ten will no longer just have to cheer on their siblings from the side of the track. Instead, they’ll be able to make their first steps in mountain biking during specially designed challenges. The Kids Cup is intended to promote biking to the youngest rippers and to give them the opportunity to get a taste of serious downhill action.

Shared experiences are at the forefront of the festival. An international roster of riders from all over the world, with all different levels of riding guarantees excitement and fun. Last year, the races saw more than 270 participants from 24 countries.
One of them is 15-year-old Canadian Jackson Goldstone, who is no stranger to the podiums at the MTB-Festival Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis. The young shredder will once again make his way to Austria to fly down the downhill track in Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis and hype up the gathered crowds. Whoever can’t wait to see Jackson during the iXS International Rookies Championships and wants to get some valuable racing tips ahead of time, should definitely check out the first episode of “Jackson’s Bike School”:
