iXS Dirt Masters Festival

Preview 2021: Safety first!

Subject to a positive development of the Corona pandemic, the international mountain bike elite will meet again in the Bikepark Winterberg on 13-16 May 2021. After a long dry spell, the festival promises four days of action at its finest for the 14th time.


With more than 1.800 participants from all corners of the world starting in different disciplines, the iXS Dirt Masters is the strongest gravity event in Europe.

Preparations are in full swing and the feedback from the bike industry is, despite the current COVID-19 situation, extremely positive. With the support of the Bikepark Winterberg, everything necessary will be done to ensure that riders of all disciplines can ride innovatively, progressively and safely. An elaborate hygiene-concept will be applied in order to be able to run the event and to guarantee safety of audience, participants and crew. Be prepared for another supreme gravity festival, where old and young, beginners and pros, families and friends, everyone is welcome!

The organizers are also focusing on the development of an app to trace infection chains seamlessly and effortlessly - without losing sight of data protection. For this project the event crew hast teamed up with a software company specialized in the development of online ticketing systems. In order to remain flexible, the weekend of September 17-19, 2021 is now considered as the offical alternative date.

"iXS Dirt Masters Festival, that's action, fun and excitement for the whole family. After a year of Corona-related break, we hope that the festival will take place again in 2021. We will implement the necessary measures at given times and make sure that it will become one of the absolute gravity highlights of 2021 for all mountainbikers, fans and the whole mountainbike industry."
