There seems to be lots going on at Leogang these days. I’m always getting emails about “this competition” and “that competition” down Leogang way, so maybe it’s worth a visit if you’re in Austria this summer.
Anyway they’ve just rebuilt their NorthShore Park aka the “LumberJack Trail” if you’re a fan of decking then check it out.
You can just turn up and ride, but if you want to catch some competitions then here are the dates:
