Description: “When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide Where I stop and I turn and I go for a ride” That is the beginning of the Beatles song the race was named after. If you were with us last year, then you know why. If you weren’t, then you will find it out. Because while riding in Rabac you will get the same feeling you get while listening to the surely roughest song of the Liverpool four. Just rougher. Much rougher. Difficult climbs and steep descents. Up and down. Helter Skelter is fast, dangerous, loud. Cruel. No stops, no rests. At one point, it will seem like too much, so other Betales songs such as “Help!” Or “I’m so tired”, maybe even “Misery” will come to mind. But you soon realise that it’s not so scary. That this naturally rough terrain actually suits you. You needed this. And it’s not that difficult. And somehow, it all ends really fast. Too fast. You’re sorry the whole story doesn’t last just a bit longer. At least a few more kilometers. Because the terrain is good. Damn good. So for the bravest among you this year we have prepared what we have been wanting for a long time, a fourth trail. Easy, Classic, Epic and ULTRA. And where else than in Rabac. Because a terrain like this doesn’t exist anywhere in the world. So let’s see you now. Ready for 100km of pure MTB? 100 km of climbing, chasing, singles, sweat and happiness. 100 km of Helter Skelter. As you sprint trough one of the countless singles that Rabac offers, the stones under your wheel play a familiar tune. It’s not Helter Skelter, but it is Rock’n’Roll. Look out, ’cause here I come! HELTER SKELTER!
