05th January, 2018, will be the date of the first ‘Bike & Ski Night Race’, a globally unique snow battle between top-class alpine ski racers and Harley Davidson riders. RAVENOL will be involved in the event as technology partner and supplier and will provide the bikers with engine oils such as the RAVENOL Motobike V-Twin SAE 20W-50 Fullsynth. as well as quite a number of other lubricants, care products and accessories.
The host and venue of the event will be the Seiser Alp in Southern Tyrol. Harley Davidson Bozen / Italy organise this top-class snow spectacle on the Puflatsch ski run of the Seiser Alp. In the event, skiing stars such as Dominik Paris, Peter Fill, Klaus Kröll, Reinfried Herbst and Achim Vogt will race down the ski run while the bikers will drive up.
The downhill pros Peter Fill und Dominik Paris and former ski racers Kröll, Herbst and Vogt will have to give their very best to prevail against the Harleys that were subjected to a special re-design for this race and will be equipped with specially treaded tyres with nails. At the same time, you certainly may expect close battles between the Swiss bikers Martin Embacher and Sven Traber as well as the other Harley riders.
Every team consists of a ski racer and a biker and the pairings will be drawn in a raffle. Every team will have to contest two heats, with the aggregated times determining the winners and the other final positions. Cable-car tours beyond the regular service of the Seiser alp ski region will offer the visitors the opportunity to watch the action at close range.
The event will begin on Friday, 05th January, at 18:00hrs CET (17:00hrs BT).
