No Mans Land
No Mans Land Freeride 2023
The No Mans Land project aims to bring to the community a wholesome and a memorable downhill experience. It strives to raise awareness on negative impacts of wars and of national borders. The venue is an important historical site. The road lays on a ridge of Kolovrat mountain which is riddled with World War 1 trenches, hence the name of the event.
Soca river and the town of Tolmin are one of the most scenic and frequented tourist destinations in this part of the Alps. The town hosts a number of summer festivals that attracts thousands of people around the globe. Thus, we are privileged to be able to hold a downhill event in such a beautiful venue, with all the infrastructure and amenities needed for your comfortable stay.
The 3km track to village Livek has been recently repaved. It is grippy and technical track with top speed hovering around 80 km/h. Having said that, it is still considered to be suitable for all level of riders as it can be taken at your own pace. The track was ridden, approved, and documented by some of the most known riders from the EU.
