The Funcross Race Series 2019/20
02.12.2019

The empty, perfectly shaped Funcross is in front of you. All other participants are waiting behind you for their turn. Behind you, that´s where they are supposed to be. Your run will prove that, it’s showtime. You enter the starting gate, take a deep breath and throw yourself into the Funcross. Welcome to the Funcross Race Series 2019/20!

We go back to March 8, 2019. Blessed with perfect weather and wonderful conditions, no less than 78 hobby racers took part at the Funcross Race in Obergugl. Today we can say without any doubt that the event was a total success! For the ski resort Gurgl, that was reason enough to host two races this winter. But that´s not all! This season, the snowiest ski resort of the alps picked up the racing fever. Another Funcross Race will go down at the new Funcross Karhorn in Warth-Schröcken! The race at the Arlberg will be the first Funcross Race, that is hosted outside of Gurgl. This winter, we will have three Funcross Races:

Funcross Race – The race of a different kind!

What´s so different about it? Unlike other races, the Funcross Race requires no registration in advance. It’s even possible to register after the race has begun and others have rushed through the Funcross several times. That´s another unique characteristic of the Funcross Race. There’s no need to enter the race and risk everything at one run, you can carve through the Funcross as often as you want to. At the end of the day, your best time counts. Our tip for your success: Clever racers get used to the course in the first couple of runs and only really get going when they know what to expect on the action-packed track.
