From 29 July until 4 August 2019

In the bike park Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis / Tyrol / Austria

Six days of bike park shredding and trail surfing for kids and teens ages 11 to 18!

Learning and having fun with the pros - this is the KONA Rookie Camp 2019, which will take place again in the first week of August as part of the MTB Festival Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis.

The crowning finale will be the competitions from 2-4 August with the Specialized Rookies Cup, the iXS Rookies Championships, the Pumptrack Session and the Family Challenge. Competent coaches and carers, as well as professionals with a lot of racing experience, will await you!


Arrival time from 2pm to 5pm on Monday, 29 July 2019.

After a first get-together to introduce everyone, all participants will be briefed before the action kicks in. Please take your bikes already on Monday with you, that our mechanics can check them.

On Tuesday we will preview the training ground in small groups according to the diverse skill-sets. After this, everyone can either hit the pump track or head to the trails that suit best, where the coach will assist individually within the group.

Accommodation with breakfast is offered in a guesthouse in Fiss. Balanced meals will either be served in the Bikepark or in the mountain restaurants in the area of Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis. It depends on the daily schedule.

Sufficient breaks will be made in the spectacular backdrop of the Austrian Alps. In addition we’ll have lots of fresh fruit, drinks and energy bars, to keep everyone fuelled through the day.

There will also be a Kona Pit with mechanics and advisors, who will support you with maintaining and fixing your bike in case you have technical issues.

After the biking there will be many more activities, and you’ll have the chance to win some additional prizes. We will also watch the latest bike films in order to get pumped for the next days.
