It was finally time again: The PROPAIN Friends event could take place after a long Corona-related break! From September 30th to October 3rd, more than 80 PROPAIN Friends gathered in the beautiful Vinschgau Valley in South Tyrol and enjoyed an unforgettable end-of-season together with the PROPAIN crew. In this photo story we want to tell you what happened at this unique event.
After the arrival, the event started on Friday evening. On a fairground in Schlanders, all FRIENDS of PROPAIN were solemnly welcomed and the plan for the next days was discussed. One thing stood always on top of the list: to have a lot of fun together on the bike!
For optimum fun on the trails, the suspension must fit perfectly. This was guaranteed by the entire PROPAIN team, whether employee or athlete, everyone helped with the setup.
On Saturday the group “Rage” had to get up early because they went high on the mountain. After the first meters of altitude could be comfortably covered by a shuttle, another 900 m of elevation awaited, which each FRIEND had to master under his own power – pedaling, pushing, and also carrying the bike.
Tips from the pros themselves – Our guides and athletes showed lines on the trails and gave riding technique tips so that even the most difficult stages could be mastered together.
Not a moment of rest – well-fed, we went straight to the FIDLOCK Bunny Hop Contest. Those who couldn’t or didn’t want to go, cheered the boys and girls on.
In the end, there was a lot of trail fun again. Special highlight: Our two photographers took action shots of every single FRIEND.
