For 22 years, the Erzberg Rodeo in Austria has attracted the world’s best off-road motorcycle racers to compete amid some of the toughest terrain on the planet.

Set among the steep grading of an iron ore mine, the Erzberg Rodeo is the grittiest, muddiest and bumpiest four days of all out hard enduro motorcycle racing in the world.

The main race, the Red Bull Hare Scramble is set for 11:30 pm Eastern May 28 live on Red Bull TV. With 500 riders competing in a grudge match up steep embankments, through mud bogs and over rows of logs in a bone jarring course, this race is all-out mayhem. Only a few dozen riders will likely even finish.


When just finishing is considered an accomplishment, winning comes with a distinction like few others in sports. This is where legends are made and stars are born.

Check out the video from Red Bull and the rest of their preview films leading up to the weekend event. You can find more videos and watch the event live at Red Bull TV here.
