It was 20 years ago that the starting flag first dropped on the Erzberg Rodeo – the 21st race will be hosted from 4th to 7th June 2015. This dirt track race in the ore mine has enjoyed cult status for many years. In 2005 Britain´s David Knight won the notorious Red Bull Hare Scramble for the first time on KTM.
