Dirt Royale

21 - 23 June 2019

The year 2019 is all about a new bike event in Lenzerheide. The Dirt Royale impresses with a new, unique racing format. The most complete biker will be crowned in various bike disciplines. Various competition disciplines such as dual slalom races, orienteering, Bikepark Challenges or various special classifications ensure variety and fun. The event can be contested in a team or as an individual rider, it is also possible to ride the individual disciplines separately.

What would a perfect bike weekend be without parties and concerts? - We also thought about it and therefore we add stage and bar for the race weekend. 

Save the Date: 21 - 23 June 2019

Friday: Dual Slalom

At the Dual Slalom, you ride with the classic  «one against one» format against a direct opponent. The starting order is determined by a qualification run. 
The finals are held from sixteenth finals.

Saturday morning: Orienteering & Trophy race

Within a time window of three hours, it is important to find as many posts as possible. A map will be given to the participants before the race. The start and finish are both marked on the map.
The round starts with a mass start. The total time from start to finish counts for the placement. Not found posts/trails will result in penalty points. Penalty points will also be awarded if a driver finishes too late.
Various trophys and vouchers are hidden on the track and can be collected by the riders.

Saturday afternoon: Dirt Royale Games sponsored by ION

At the Royale Games, points are fought for in various disciplines in the bikepark:

Beat the local: Many have tried, few have made it: Beating our Lenzerheide Bikepark team. A rider of the team sets a time, now it's up to the participants to beat it. Different sections on the PRIMEline are stopped and added up. For the classification, the total time of the sections counts. The winners of the individual sections will receive special prizes.

Foxhunt: Fox hunting in Lenzerheide: While the foxes (participants) wait nervously for the starting signal, the hunter (fast rider) prepares a few metres behind the mass start field for the forthcoming hunt. The foxes start in the pack and are chased down the FLOWline by the hunter. All riders who cross the finish line before the hunter will be considered as winners.

Chainless Race: Who brakes, loses. Classic race with individual start. Waves, and flow have to be used to keep as much speed as possible. Because riding and braking errors with a few pedal turns to make up for does not work in this race.

STRAIGHTline Challenge: It's not the fastest rider who wins, it's the one who can judge himself best. A local gives the time, the participants have to estimate their time (faster or slower). The difference between the estimate and the time ridden counts for the evaluation.

Saturday evening: «Abstigerlis» Game

In the classic Abstigerlis (= dismounting) the bikers fight directly against each other in a small ring. The goal is to push the opponent(s) from the bike, to keep their balance at the same time and not to put any foot down.
This is a special classification and does not count towards the overall classification.
