Sunlight Camp & Ride Sölden 2019
30 people (of all ages), 17 Sunlight models (of the brand-new generation), 2 bike pros (two of the best in Germany), 1 camping site (right at the foot of the bike park). From the start at the headquarters in Isny to the trails in the Austrian Ötztal, the whole journey of the 4th Sunlight Camp & Ride was “seriously picobello” as Oli Dorn put it. He was hosting the camp for the second time together with Guido Tschugg.
The two Sunlight Factory team members are part of the world’s mountain bike elite and superb coaches, too. No wonder, the 30 spots that were available for the Camp & Ride were quickly booked.
The participants all came to Isny, changed into 17 new Sunlight mobile homes and then all together rolled deep into the Alps to the legendary camping site in Sölden. “We had a separate space all to ourselves on the site,” Oli says and boasts not only about the barbecue nights, but also about the set-up and maintenance training and the general team spirit. “It was a great mix of all kinds of people – all ages, even small kids, almost as many women as men – and we all had a great time from the first second.”
Guido and Oli held a skills course and took the crew to the amazing trails of the BIKE REPUBLIC. Back at the site, they quizzed the camp riders and gave away goodies from Maloja, Sunlight, Acros and SQ lab, before opening “pretty long nights”. Apparently, the good Sunlight vibes were talk of the town: Lukas, the owner of the camping site, and the team of the BIKE REPUBLIC joined the Sunlight crowd to say hi.
We are looking forward to return in 2020 to roll out another fantastic Camp & Ride event in Sölden!
