Despite the powerful international competition at Erzberg, Austria's top dirtbike riders manage to keep the crowd on their feet each year. To place amongst champions from all over the world and earn the respect (and interest) from factory team principals and industry people is indeed a huge motivation. Lars Enöckl (KTM), Dieter Rudolf (KTM), Bernhard Schöpf (KTM), Rudi Poeschl (Husqvarna) and Ossi Reisinger (Husqvarna) are only the spearheads of a full phalanx of national riders, who are eager to proove themselves in front of thousands of local fans at the Erzbergrodeo XXII. Enoeckl, Rudolf and Poeschl have already put their names in the record books of international Hardenduro racing and are considered Austria's top guns at the Red Bull Hare Scramble, while Ossi Reisinger and his fellow Austrian offroaders already earned their lourels in the Kärcher Rocket Ride uphill race and the high-speed Generali Iron Road Prologue. Once again, these local heroes are ready to make the Austrian motorsports fans cheer at this years Erzbergrodeo.
