SeeDuroWeeks Ossiacher See Review!

This past weekend kicked off the biking season in the Villach – Faaker See – Ossiacher See region with the much-anticipated SeeDuroWeeks 2024. This international mountain bike event included four competitions over three days and attracted over 100 participants from six nations. From Wednesday to Friday, enthusiasts were able to participate in free training and guiding sessions with Alpletics to prepare for the races. On Saturday, young riders aged 6 to 17 demonstrated their skills in technical and cross-country races. On Sunday, true professionals, e-bike riders, and race starters tested their limits in the Enduro race across various stages. In collaboration with the state of Carinthia, we at lake.bike have been granted the unique opportunity, along with our organizer Mountainsport Union Klagenfurt, to create a valuable platform for youth mountain biking.
