It is time to make bike racing a bit more fun! Not just about the strongest legs… Also about the best skills on the bike.

8bar Team

The 8bar LAST ONE STANDING 2024 takes place on 13 and 14th April 2024 during VELO Berlin bike show.

The course we’ve developed for this will literally turns your head. We couldn’t incorporate more hairpin turns. And if that’s not enough, there will be a few special obstacles as well.

So we designed a race track that is short, intense and technical at the same time.

The FIXED-GEAR Race is scheduled for Saturday, followed by the GRAVEL event on Sunday. For the GRAVEL Bikes Race, we’ll be incorporating some additional obstacles to add an extra layer of challenge and excitement.

Here you can see a video from our last 8bar LAST ONE STANDING at Airport Tempelhof to get an idea of the format:
