2023 UCI World Cup – Lenzerheide
June 9 @ 3:30 pm - June 10 @ 3:00 pmCHF10
Lenzerheide is a high valley alpine resort, located at 1400 metres above sea level in Switzerland. With a stunning view of the Heidsee lake, surrounded by peaks reaching up to 2800 metres, Lenzerheide knows how to impress. Known as the Bike Kingdom, Lenzerheide is a paradise for mountain bikers, offering a wide variety of terrain to explore.
This year’s event promises to be one to remember. As the home of Nino Schurter, the local legend will be looking to make up for his heartbreaking defeat in the 2022 Cross-country race and assert his dominance on the course once again.
Downhill fans can look forward to the first UCI Downhill World Cup race of the year taking place in Lenzerheide. With the technical and demanding high speed course, the race is sure to be another tight timed spectacle. Despite her success on the international stage, Swiss downhill rider Camille Balanche has never won a UCI Mountain Bike World Cup race on home soil and she is expected to bring her A-game to this event.
Lenzerheide has become a mainstay of the UCI World Cup series over the years and for race fans offers a super fast start to the downhill season as the racers rocket down through Bike Kingdom’s toughest tests. As the opening round of the downhill season, it will be eagerly awaited as the first opportunity to see who is fully up to speed and who has work to do.
In addition to the main event, there are also a variety of side events to enjoy. These include live music concerts and parties, as well as a bike testing site. For the kids, there will be a series of fun bike challenges and activities, helping to introduce them to the sport of mountain biking.
