  • Balkan Downhill Cup starts in


  • Due to the elevation, cable transport and a great position, Sinaia is a great candidate for organizing the Romanian Downhill Championships. The first one was held in 1998.

    Though Sinaia evolved from a ski perspective a lot faster then as a destination for bike riding, during last 4 years significant progress was achieved.
    With huge potential still unexploited, 2000m altitude max elevation, Sinaia now has a Downhill track and 2 other Enduro tracks.

    During the weekend of 25th-27th of May a contest for kids and the 2nd round of the Romanian Trial Series take place here as well.

    The event is organised by Kronstadt Cycling, local gravity sports club, with the help of Tare Ca Piatra, Bike Resort Sinaia, Gondola Sinaia and last but not least, Sinaia City Townshall.

    Track

    Contest will be held on the downhill track called iconic Happy Bear.
    Track measures 2km lenght and starts at 1400m elevation and ends by the gondola at 1000m altitude.

    Track contains a mixture of fast yet tricky sections combined with roots and off cambers and as it evolved it was kept as natural as possible, with a minimum of human intervention.

    Track runs fast, faster than we want it anyway, and as we speak, we are changing some lines aiming to tame it down a notch.

    We are not big fans of bikeparkish tracks so we try to keep this one as natural as possible 🙂
