It‘s only a few days left until the Styrian Erzberg will tremble under the tyres of thousands of offroad motorcycles. After a 2-years break, Red Bull Erzbergodeo will gather athletes and Action-Sports fans at the “Iron Giant” from June 16th to 19th. The very last preparations for the renowned Extreme Enduro event are well on their way and we present some more highlights.
Enzersfeld, June 2022
Just in time before the international motorcycle offroad family populates the Erzberg for four days, the “little city at the Iron Giant” is built up by the Red Bull Erzbergrodeo crew. It takes a lot of effort and manpower to build up racetracks, rider paddocks, a full blown traffic guidance system and the complete infrastructure for the Red Bull Erzbergrodeo Arena from scratch.
“Without the support of our partners and sponsors, the efforts behind Red Bull Erzbergrodeo would be hard to handle. The cooperation with our long-term partners like KTM, Red Bull, Blakläder, Motorex, Mitas or Akrapovic mould a solid base for the further development of the event. I’m also very happy to welcome new partners like Egger Bier, Wenatex Schlafsysteme and Milwaukee Tools at the Red Bull Erzbergrodeo.”, Red Bull Erzbergrodeo Mastermind Karl Katoch describes the economical background of the event.

The 500 starters of the highlight race on Sunday will line up in 10 rows to each 50 riders at the start, the order of riders is traditionally determined by the Prologue results.
