40,000 visitors, 180 exhibitors and several sportive highlights made a big success of the 26nd edition of the FSA BIKE Festival Garda Trentino in Riva del Garda.

For three days the expo area at Lake Garda turned into a vibrant scene for thousands of mtb fans. A new record: 180 exhibitors from the bike sector took the chance to show new trends and products. Visitors could get tips and tricks from the experts and test new bikes and equipment.
„The great response of exhibitors and visitors shows one more time the huge standing that the FSA BIKE Festival is still enjoying  since its first edition 26 years ago. All the important brands took part in die expo and also the bike fans could not be discouraged by the bad weather conditions“,  says Monika Weber, head of events at Delius Klasing. 
From the sportive perspective, the FSA BIKE Festival event was offering a whole mtb package for both professional riders and ordinary cyclists. At the Rocky Mountain BIKE Marathon 2000 starters took up the challenge of demanding tracks. Sascha Weber (GER) won the title on the Ronda Extrema, followed by Juri Ragnoli (ITA) and Andreas Seewald (GER). Best woman of the race is Zuzanna Krzystala from Poland. The german riders Stefanie Dohrn and Katrin Schwing got second and third.
More about having fun on the bike than competing werde the eMTB Challenge supported by Trek and the new race format: GHOST Recon Ride. Also the young mtb riders showed their talents at the Scott Junior Trophy, despite of the rainy and muddy conditions.
Unfortunately the Scott Enduro Series was cancelled due to the bad weather – safety first. Next station of the Enduro Series will be at the 22nd FSA BIKE Festival in Willingen (17-19 May 2019). 
The date for the 27th edition of the FSA BIKE Festival Garda Trentino is already fixed: From 1st to 3rd of May 2020 again everything will evolve around mountain bikes.
