Wild Action At The 2018 Erzbergrodeo Red Bull Hare Scramble
The Erzbergrodeo Red Bull Hare Scramble is the most celebrated of the extreme hard enduro races and, perhaps, the most well known. Held in a iron mining quarry outside of Eisenerz, Austria, the Erzberg Hare Scramble starts with two days of high-speed qualifying, which pares the initial field of 1,800-plus down to the final 500 who will face the Iron Giant on Sunday in rows of 50.
The winner of the Erzberg Hare Scramble is often credited as being the best extreme off-road racer in the world. This year’s winner, Graham Jarvis, is now a four-time winner of the event. Jarvis considers the Erzbergrodeo the most demanding of all extreme races. “Once you get to Carl’s Diner, that’s the point where it just gets relentless and you’re pushing your body perhaps harder than any other event,” Jarvis said. “Sections like Carl’s Diner are what makes Erzberg the most demanding of the extreme races.”
