The new side event at the Erzbergrodeo has already turned out to be a real crowds favourite when it was first introduced in 2009 and was tatally sold out once again in 2010. More than 300 riders lined up at the start to deliver breathtaking action to the thousands of specators alongside the track. A hillclimb like no other - true Erzberg-Style...!
KÄRCHER ROCKET RIDE is all about conquering a 3-story uphill section in the fastest possible way. Riders line up in groups of six and start the race in MX-style - with a starting machine and transponder timing. Only the 3 fastest riders of each group emerge to the next round. During qualification each rider has two attempts to reach the Superfinals where only the fastest 48 riders will fight for the prestigious KÄRCHER ROCKET RIDE trophy.
Typically Erzberg: the KÄRCHER ROCKET RIDE offers a good taste of the Erzbergrodeos upcoming challenges, as the riders have to negotiate with one of the notorious, ultra-steep uphills of the Red Bull Hare Scramble. The KÄRCHER ROCKET RIDE action will be followed by thousands of enthusiastic spectators to cheer on their favourite riders - so you better give it all, because Mum could be watchin...!
