Bikefestival Basel
Festival Details:

The „Veloclub Reinach” (VCR) was founded in 1982 by a few cycling enthusiasts. Already in 1990 the club started to support the new discipline of Mountain biking long before other clubs did.

From 1986 to 1996 the VCR successfully organized National Kriterium-roadraces. In 1996 the first edition of a national cross country mountainbike race was held in Reinach. Since then the club has organized races at a national level in the Swiss national Crosscountry Mountainbike series.

In 2007 the event moved from Reinach to the “Schänzli” Hippodrome right opposite the FC Basel Stadium “St. Jakob”. Over the years the event has grown to become one of the biggest cycling events in Switzerland. Along with the XC-Races a wide variety of other disciplines including Dirtbike, Pumptrack, and Minidrome will take place in front of more than 10’000 spectators.

In 2014 a limited company (IG Radsportförderung Nordwestschweiz GmbH) was founded to provide an economic framework to the growing event and to improve the organization.
It has always been the organisers’ main goal to bring together the best riders and the best crowds, and to put the event on an economically solid footing thereby securing the event’s ongoing story of success.

With all this success and the experience gained we look forward to organising an outstanding ‘HorsClass’ MTB Race
