As of 2013 , the WorldGames of Mountainbiking will no longer be a ‚hobby‘ Championships, but a „World Championships for ALL Mountainbikers“. It will be permitted that as well as Hobby Bikers, Licenced bikers will also be able to participate.
Participants under the age of 18, will need a signed form of consent from their parents in order for them to participate.
As of 2013 there will be a new Marathon distance - Marathon 58, with 58,40 km and 2.920 hm
After a group start, the goal is to complete the technical course before your comrades. Whoever still has energy reserve after 30 minutes to be the first in making the final sprint to the finish at the pedestrianised area in Hinterglemm, has earned the title of World Champion.
Race time: 30 Minutes + 1 round
By the World Games of Mountainbiking 2013 there is also a Marathon - Team Rating. Each Team needs to have a finisher (man or woman) in one of the Marathon distances.
Again in this year we have a special combination evaluation with another international sports event in the Glemm Valley: The International Ski Touring Marathon Mountain Attack.
Therefore all those participants who finished the long distance in the Mountain Attack on 11th January 2013 and complete the "long" Marathon distance at World Games of Mountainbiking will be automatically entered to fight it out for the title of "Mountain Hero'".
