New spectator record on the course

1,000 enthusiastic fans gathered this year at the hotspot of the marathon, on the Choralpe (1,710 m) in Westendorf to cheer on the mountain bikers.
This steep section of the track also goes by the name "sliding route" and provides spectators with spectacular views of the race course and the impressive, surrounding mountains.
New audience records were also seen on the Fleckalm Trail, in the finish area and around the Ehrenbachhöhe.

"We are particularly pleased with the development of spectators over the last few years along the route,
as it is really the viewers who ensure that the race is an unforgettable experience for the cyclists,"
said Max Salcher, head of organization of the KitzAlpBike Marathon.
