We are delighted to let Ski Mojo users know about the first ever ‘Augmented Skiing World Championships’.
This inaugural event will take place in Alpe d’Huez on 25-26 January 2020. It’s an open race, designed for skiers who are assisted with exoskeleton devices such as Ski Mojo, enabling users of all abilities able to race in different categories and try out your ‘mechanical doping’!
The founder and organiser of the event is Ophélie David, a former member of the French Alpine Ski Team.
Giant Slalom and Ski Trail events
You’ll be able to show off the power of the Ski Mojo in a Giant Slalom race and the additional endurance that it offers in a Ski Trail in the afternoon.
Points from both events will be combined to find the winners in each category – but it’s not just competition, this is a social event, where Ski Mojo users can gather and have fun.
On Sunday a Ski Mojo ‘rally’ (just like you can imagine with Harley Davidson riders) will take place!
Martin Hannaford, Managing Director of Ski Mojo, an official partner of the event, said:
“Ski Mojo users can’t enter official ski competitions, so the idea to create a special event, that is designed to be fun as well as competitive, for exoskeleton users, seems like a great idea. The resort of Alpe d’Huez is a perfect place to hold the event.”
The entrance fee is €90 per person, including entry to all races (lift pass not included), welcome drink on Friday evening, gala dinner meal and awards ceremony. Travel and accommodation must be booked independently.
