Delicious food, great people and spectacular trails – is there a better way to ride across South Tyrol than as part of the unique SHIMANO E — MOUNTAINBIKE Experience?

23. – 27. September 2019

The third edition of the SHIMANO E — Mountainbike Experience is the event number one in the 2019 MTB calendar. Four picturesque destinations in South Tyrol/Alto Adige, Italy, will meet the participants with warm hospitality and their signature treats when they arrive after a memorable day of cycling on spectacular trails across the southern Alps. The participants will be divided into three different groups based on their skill levels before they hit the trails together with like-minded bike aficionados and professional guides. From ambitious athletes to just-for-fun cyclists – the SHIMANO E — MOUNTAINBIKE Experience offers something for everyone. During the Prolog event professional bike guides will assess the participants’ skill levels, share their expertise on riding techniques and give detailed insight into the exciting world of e-MTBs. Another highlight of this edition is the opportunity to test the latest e-MTB products of the nine leading bike partners every day. Everything can be booked as an attractive all-inclusive package complete with overnight stays. What more could an e-MTB lover ask for?
