The big field included some famous names from different MTB disciplines like former pro Jose Hermida (ESP), Jerome Clementz (FRA), Fabian Scholz (GER) and Jasper Jauch (GER) as well as festival inventor Uli Stanciu and several representatives of the exhibitors of the outdoor fair in Riva del Garda.
In addition, defending champions Lisa Breckner (GER) and Gustav Wildhaber (SUI) were also lining up at La Rocca hoping to keep on hold to their 2017 title.
