Premier: ROTAX participating at the Salzkammergut Trophy 2019
On July 12th and 14th 2019, our BRP-Rotax bike team started with 35 participants at the legendary Salzkammergut Trophy for the first time. It was proved, that the Salzkammergut is good for the heart chamber – if you approach it like we do.
The Salzkammergut Trophy is considered the largest mountain bike marathon in Austria and one of the toughest one-day marathons in Europe, with over 5,000 participants, over 210 kilometres and 7,119 altitude difference. This year, it took place again on the second Saturday and Sunday in July and Rotax brought a lot of movement into the weekend:
Over 35 of our colleagues cycled through the unique UNESCO World Heritage region of the Hallstatt-Dachstein/Salzkammergut cultural landscape and mastered the high demands on fitness and technique. They were perfectly prepared for this challenge because of their individual training in the company’s own health and fitness centre “doo it”, their professional support of coach Manuel Brummer and the nutrition tips of dietician Cornelia Wagner, who supported them in the run-up to the event to bring themselves into shape.
In addition to the challenge and pleasure, health and fitness also played an important role, which is part of Rotax’s everyday life. From the annual health days to the business run and half marathon to the company’s own gym, where employees and their family members can train 24/7.
We are happy about the first time at the Salzkammergut Trophy and congratulate our colleagues who set a first record for us with their enthusiasm and stamina. The second time is only a year away!
