It’s been well publicised that the Enduro World Series (EWS) will finish its season in Zermatt, Switzerland for the first time this year.
But that’s not where the story ends - once the Champions have been crowned and the podium champagne finished, Zermatt will host specialists from around the world for their second TRAILLOVE- Alpine Mountainbike Festival Trail Building Summit.
There'll be some riding time on Zermatt's incredible trails too!
The summit will gather experts from all areas of the mountain biking industry, as well as riders, public organisations and conservation associations to share and strengthen expertise around sustainable trail building.
This year’s program features some titans of the trail building world, including World Trail’s Glen Jacobs from Australia and Tom Prochazka from Canada based Whistler Gravity Logic. Topics up for discussion include the latest developments in sustainability, how cyclists and hikers can share the trail, wildlife considerations and how infrastructure can shape the sport.
There will also be hands on workshops with Marc McClure and Diddie Schneider - a a great way to loosen up after all the theory!
The Trail Building Summit will take place on 23-24 September at the TRAILLOVE - Alpine Mountain Bike Festival - for more more information about the summit or to buy tickets click here.
