2011 TOUR THROUGH THE BEAUTIFUL REGION OF JURA
THE SUCCESS FORMULA FOR 12 YEARS OF MOUNTAIN RALLY
The NUTRIXXION Mountain Rally is a multi-day mountain bike tour. It is for mountain bike enthusiasts who are passionate about riding in unexplored areas around the world. It runs over the most beautiful trails in Western Europe. This mountain bike tour has been presented for 12 years in succession by organizers Michelle Schierle and Willi Felix. The NUTRIXXION Mountain Rally is seen by participants as extremely well organized in a very relaxed atmosphere. Every year, this route runs through one or more of the Alpine regions of Switzerland. The 2011 tour will be visiting a completely new route and will travel across the Jura Mountains on the Western side of Switzerland through the magical wine region.
The NUTRIXXION Mountain Rally is not a competition but an adventure for mountain bikers to enjoy in a relaxed style. It is also not a team event where riders are in any category – it is an individual experience – however, one experiences an amazing camaraderie between all participants. It is a lot of fun discussing each day’s route with your new friends over dinner time. The landscape determines the tempo that you will ride - and the length of your rest time is determined by yourself!
