About us - the Elements Team
First Downhill and Mountainbike School in Leogang!
It was a long and arduous journey to the opening of the first downhill school in Leogang. The acceptance of this sport, which was still very young and unknown at the time, only increased very slowly. It took a lot of persuasion and many development steps, especially with regard to the right methodological structure and the design of the curriculum, and this path as a woman was not exactly easier. After years of work and many rejections, the time had finally come in 2011. We have received the approval and official recognition for the first "Bike Park Instructor Training" from the Austrian Cycling Association. So, the course was set, and we could finally present our curriculum to the public. I was able to take some knowledge from my many years of work in the ski and snowboard school in Zell am See and from my extensive experience as an outdoor trainer, but also from my racing experience and from the many years as a trainer at the Salzburg Professional Ski Instructors Association (SBSSV) I could benefit. Most of the time, however, we simply had to try it out on ourselves, and that's exactly what we do every day. We never lost the fun of it and the love for sport and nature. That's exactly what we want to share with you every day. A big "thank you" for the great commitment to our project to the entire Epic Bikepark Leogang crew and especially to my team from the Bike School Elements!

How to find us
How do I judge my level?
Yes - it's such a thing with the level! Since we are all very individual and have different strengths and weaknesses, it is not always possible to say exactly what level a rider has. We have tried to find a division for our courses and hope you can orientate yourself more easily.
If you have any questions, we will of course be happy to advise you!
No, or little previous knowledge on trails or in the Bike Park. I can ride a bike;
Some previous knowledge - little bike park or trail experience e.g. residents (berms), braking, basic position; I ride MTB on forest roads and cart paths as well as on easy trails;
I've ridden on trails and in the bike park. Berms, correct braking with both brakes, choice of line, obstacles, jumping technique, basic knowledge;
I've ridden different routes in the bike park. All curve techniques, jumps, drops, tables, rollers, laying and pushing techniques, etc. are familiar to me;
I ride all tracks incl. the Downhill World Cup track, tricks and big jumps (e.g. hot shots) are familiar to me. Goal: Downhill passages, line selection, race technique, big jumps, drops, gabs, shark fins and tricks;
What information do we need from you for a course booking?
Appointment, name, age, ability, bike experience, training desires;
What is the difference between downhill and freeride?
Downhill is the name given to the descent on a partly paved, partly unspoiled course in the Bike Park. This is about dealing with this distance as fast as possible. The downhill track in Leogang is the World Cup and only recommended for advanced bikers. Most of the bike park routes are FREERIDE tracks, but are falsely referred to as downhill. Of course, it's also downhill on freeride tracks!
How can I book?
All camps must be booked online using the registration form. All ½ day or daily classes can be booked by mail or by phone.
Do the course price include lift ticket and bike / equipment rental?
No! This is just the course fee including all taxes and duties. The price for bike and equipment depends on: Desired bike, duration of the rental, Inches 16 "/ 20" / 24 "/ 26"/27.5 "/29" and height;
The lift ticket price depends on the age, type of ticket (one-way ticket, 4-hour ticket, day ticket or multi-day ticket)
How many participants are in a group?
Depending on the booked activity. In the Bike Park the groups are kept small - on average about 6 - 7 participants.
In MTB driving technique training, in the case of a homogeneous group, 8 participants can also be in a group outside the park.
Which Bike Park routes are used?
The choice of routes depends on the level of the participants. Beginner Courses are mainly conducted in lower park area. Here a ticket for assembly line and tow lift is required. Advanced courses are held depending on the topic on different routes – a ticket for the cable car is necessary.
Where is the lift ticket available?
All lift tickets are available at the ticket office/bottom station Bike Park Leogang.
What information does the bike rental company need?
Name, date, desired bike, height and weight as well as information about the duration of the rental. ID required! https://www.sportmitterer.at/de/bikeverleih-scott-testcenter.html
Where is the bike rental?
In the same building - on the 1st floor. Directly at the bottom station Bike Park Leogang, Hütten 39, 5771 Leogang. BIKERESERVATION SPORT MITTERER
How to get to the 1st floor (workshop and bike rental)?
You can take the stairs in the Sport Shop Mitterer, the elevator, the escalator or the outside elevator. The bike rental and the workshop can also be reached by road (start in front of the entrance door - Bike School).
Where is the bike returned after the rental?
On the first floor - right next to the rental is the bike return.
What happens in case of bad weather?
The courses are also carried out in the rain. Weather-appropriate clothing is required! We also have an indoor area for the trainings. The Bike Park routes are fine to ride in the rain. Sometimes even better than in dry conditions.
How long in advance do you have to book?
Even we cannot always answer this question because the booking situation is constantly changing. Especially on weekends, public holidays and during the holiday season, it is advisable to book ahead.
Is it possible to book private lessons?
You can also book a private teacher for some hours or for the day. By appointment only!
What is happening in the different courses?
All courses are based on previous knowledge. In all courses, the position, interaction of the joints with the fork and damper elements as well as the different curve techniques are trained. Jump Technique and Drops - depending on the level of participants. Our trainers will respond to your wishes as long as they can be fulfilled and make sense. Generally, the beginner courses (& slightly advanced courses) are in the morning at 10:00 and the advanced courses in the afternoon at 13:00. There is also an early bird from 09:00 - 10:00.
Is the accommodation included in the course or in the camp?
No! There are over 400 different accommodations in the area. Please contact the Tourist Office of the region:
Is the rookie camp for beginners only?
No, the participants are divided according to age and level.
Are there courses if you cannot cycle?
No! Minimum requirement is knowledge of how to ride a bike.
What is a bike park?
A bike park is similar to a fun park or a fun slope in winter, so a built track with different obstacles (riparian curve, wall rides, jumps and drops).
Can anyone ride the beginner routes?
No! Some previous knowledge is required!
Do I have to wear safety equipment?
Full face helmet and protectors mandatory on all bike park courses.
Some people get wet - others feel the rain! It's a lot of fun to ride in the rain - you will see!
