Wonderful exertion with challenging climbs, breathtaking views after several hairpin turns, here in the Pop Valley you are in the middle of nature and it seems as if the mountains are made for cycling. Every year many top athletes are coming here on training camp and in preparation of the cycling season.
For mountainbiking it is the same, this is the perfect location to go all the way.
