From September 3rd to 5th, 2021 the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup with the disciplines Cross-Country (XCO & XCC) and Downhill (DHI) will take place in Lenzerheide. The event is planned with a limited number of visitors per day; ticket sales will start on July 1, 2021. Lenzerheide can’t wait to host this popular major event with an overwhelming atmosphere created by the fans.
In contrast to last year, when there was hardly any planning security for major events and the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup had to be canceled around two months before the event date, the current situation looks very promising. The organizing committee is planning the event with up to 10,000 visitors per day. “We are happy and grateful that the epidemiological situation in Switzerland has improved so much that it is possible for us to organize an event for bike fans,” says OC President Christoph Müller. Of course, you have to adhere to all official requirements and have to constantly reassess the situation, emphasizes Müller. “We know from experience that the pandemic is unpredictable and that the situation can look different from one day to the next. As of today, we are confident that we will be able to organize an unforgettable bike festival like in previous years. ”
