The love for trails unites all mountainbikers. If it wasn’t for the love of trails, mountainbikers wouldn’t spend so much time outdoors in shitty weather, endure so many abrasions and rather spend their money on a new helmet than a new tie. We are going to celebrate the love for trails from August 26th to 30th 2020 with the TRAILLOVE Alpine Mountainbike Festival in Zermatt.Event details
