THE TIMETABLE 2017 (Saturday/Sunday no races this year)

 

 

The Time-Trial for the regulation of the starting grid for the Team Relay will take place on Monday, 14th of August at 17:30 o´clock as a Team-Time-Trial . Each 3-riders-team has to complete a course of about 2 minutes lenght together. The ride-time of the slowest team-member is essential for the ranking for the Team Relay.


XCO -  4 combined competitions

The European Champions are to be determined in an overall ranking based on 4 competitions on 4 different race days. Those 4 competitions are XCO, XCO Team Relay, XCO Combined and XCO X-Large. Each competition will have a small winners’ ceremony afterwards, awarding the first 3 with trophies. After each contest the participant leading the overall ranking receives the Leader Jersey, which he/she has to wear during the following race of the ECH. Official UEC European Youth Mountainbike Champion will be only the winner of the overall ranking in the categories U15 and U17 men and women. This will reduce the pressure on the participants not depending on a single result.
Including a Team Relay in the overall ranking will also encourage the team spirit. The start/finish area for XCO, XCO Team Relay, XCO Combined is located at an altitude of 419m above sea level, around the event centre of Stattegg Lässerhof. The ground floor of the event centre will be in case of bad weather conditions available for the prize giving ceremonies.
 
XCO Combined > A technical competition for bike kids
The XCO Combined was designed for the Austrian Mountainbike Youngster Cup and has been tested for seven years now in several races in Austria. A competition of 8 technical sections (will be arranged at the Dorfplatz Stattegg, the main place of the village of Stattegg) is combined with an XCO race. Each section counts 1, 2 or 3 points. The rider with the highest score is starting to the XCO at first. The starting time of the other riders depends on their handicaps of points (similar to the Nordic Combined with Gundersenmethod). The rider, who reaches the finish first, will be the winner of the XCO Combined. A detailed regulation for XCO Combined (= Mountainbike Kombination), an automatic scoring system based on Microsoft excel and a lot of different suggestions for sections for the technical competition have been worked out and tested. The goal of the XCO Combined is to improve the technical skills of the young riders.
