A Warm Winter: White Style postponed to February 14th

Leogang, Austria, January 22th 2014 – What a paradox: While winter sport enthusiasts are enjoying the season called winter in Saalfelden Leogang, for mountain bike fans it’s not “winterly” enough. Constant temperatures above freezing point have forced the hosts to delay our beloved White Style, the only FMB World Tour event on snow, until February. The new date for White Style will be Friday, February 14th.
 
Mountain bikers usually go to great lengths to avoid snow, while skiers and snowboarders find their element in Saalfelden Leogang. But once a year, mountain bikers are also praying for snow -  the “white gold” is the indispensable construction material for the purely snow-based White Style course. “The current weather forecast doesn’t allow us to host White Style at the originally planned date on January 31st”, said main host Kornel Grundner from Saalfelden Leogang.
 
This is however, not a reason to abstain from one of the absolute bike highlights of the season. Organizers have decided to postpone White Style for another two weeks. The auxiliary date is now Friday, February 14th. The general weather forecast is optimistic, since the actual onset of winter in the Alps is now predicted for the first half of February.
 
Make sure to keep your spirits high and check out the official White Style teaser – it will certainly keep you excited for another 3 weeks, until we see in Leogang!
 
Press accreditation for 2014 will be extended until February 13th! (Interested media representatives should please contact: Lars Wich).
