Supporting Program

The Mountainbike & Trial European Championship 2013 in Bern offers not only alongside the tracks but also beyond a lot!

A musical highlight will be without shadow of a doubt a free open-air concert on Friday evening, June 21st 2013 at 9.00 PM on the Parliament Square (called Bundesplatz) of the famous Swiss band Pegasus. The free concert is made possible thanks to the collaboration with the Swiss Federal Office for Civil Protection in the framework of the 50th Anniversary of Swiss Civil Protection.

Pegasus live in concert

The Parliament Square transforms itself to the centre of the MTB & Trial world with a big screen broadcasting all the action from the track, a food stall and a stage where the victory ceremonies are taking place. The local radio station Radio Energy Bern will make sure that a great atmosphere will emerge with a mobile radio station.

As highlight of the presence on the Parliament Square and to conclude the European Championship will Energy take over the stage direction on Saturday evening and invites to a big free concert. What big names will be playing on the stage is still a secret, but will be announced on Tuesday, June 18th.

From the victory ceremony to the official EC meeting place on Saturday evening at the prestigious Liquid Club in Berne it’s only a short stroll.

From Saturday until Sunday offers the local mountain Gurten spectators a big range of activities. Supporters have the chance to follow the race action of cross-country directly at the race track in a Public Viewing Zone with big screen. A Bike Expo including an own Nation Village gives you the chance to discover the newest trends and mingle with the athletes.

Supporters that are not able to travel to Berne will not be left in the dark. An own EC Live-TV will broadcast the main races of the European Championships directly over internet to your home.
