On Friday the offroad comunity's biggest, fastest and craziest starting grid starts the fight against the stop watch! 1.500 competitors from more than 40 nations and all continents enter the blakläder iron road prologue sharing the same goal: to conquer the 15km long and sometimes 30 meter wide racetrack as fast as possible, qualify themselves amongst the 500 fastest and earn a starting spot for the Red Bull Erzbergrodeo Main Race.
The blaklÄder iron road Prologue offers dramatic high-speed action of an own level. Riding skills, speed and the perfect choice of line through the many curves decide upon winning or losing. Almost anything resembling a motorbike is entitled to compete in this race, assumed it is technically OK. Big bore Enduros, Scooters, Mopeds and even modified street bike are no rare sight at the start of the Erzbergrodeo's Prologue race.
The rules are simple: each competitor has two attempt on the racetrack, one on Friday and Saturday each. Riders are released on the track in intervals of 20 seconds, and as soon as the checkers are lifted it's all about holding the throttle wide open until the finish line at the Erzberg's peak at 1.466m above sea level. Top speeds of 190 km/h are no rarity on the bumped and gnarly gravel racetrack which winds alongside the main rider paddock up to the iron mountain's peak.
After 2 days of racing, each riders fastest heat decides about his total ranking in the blakläder iron road prologue and his start at the Red Bull Erzbergrodeo Main Race...!
The blakläder iron road prologue spectator areas offer an amazing sight on the gnarly racetrack and the massive high-speeds racing action. The spectator areas are in short walking distance from the Red Bull Erzbergrodeo Arena.
