Two of our employees will be leaving their desks behind to participate in the Engadin Bike Giro. Three days of trail fun in the high Alps – but also agony in the fight for seconds! #whostopsyou
Engadin Bike Giro whostopsyou?! Intro
Everyone has their own personal goals and motivations, but the road is never straightforward or easy, whether you’re a World Cup professional, a hobby biker or simply a pleasure cyclist.
Some of this #whostopsyou mentality is in every one of us. If you want to achieve a lot, you should constantly question yourself – am I really giving it my all, or am I letting little things get in my way? #whostopsyou?
Our employees also leave their comfort zones regularly, whether it’s their offices, in the development of new products or in sporting challenges. It doesn’t always have to be the battle for the world champion’s jersey – the very personal and everyday challenges are also right up there as priorities!
Two of our employees will find their personal challenge this summer at the three-day MTB Engadin Bike Giro stage race – and we’ll take you along with us!
Not 100% professionals. We’re just like you. Two enthusiastic mountain bikers with a 40-hour working week, who use every minute of their free time to challenge trails on their bikes and reel off the kilometres. We are Dominik (MAGURA Content Marketing) and Roland (MAGURA Team Leader, AM Sales).
We’ll be leaving our families and desks behind, putting an out-of-office note in our mailboxes and focusing on racing for three days! #whostopsyou?
Both of us have already gained experience in stage races and national championships, but this race is nevertheless special for us – it’s a real challenge.
The Engadin Bike Giro
We’re tired of marathons with boring forest roads – but which bike race would give us flow and challenging trails? Our choice ultimately fell on the Engadin Bike Giro. The Swiss stage race around St. Moritz promises unbelievable scenery and fantastic trails.
- Stage #1: 43 km – 1772 m difference in altitude
- Stage #2: 63 km – 2596 m difference in altitude
- Stage #3: 60 km – 2037 m difference in altitude
The special feature of this race is the altitude. Each of the stages starts at an altitude of about 1700 metres. Pedalling uphill, it doesn’t take too long until your body starts struggling to find enough oxygen in the thin air – and this puts an incredible strain on you. However, the altitude will also provide us with fantastic panoramas and single trails! In addition to many natural trails, we’ll also be able to try out several specially constructed flow trails. The first ride before the race was promising! This will be challenge not only in the ascends but also in the downhills.
