Epic Footage from the 2013 Erzberg Hare Scramble Rodeo [Photo Gallery][Video]
The Erzberg Rodeo is one of the world's toughest hare scramble races, helt on the premises of an Austrian mine, and for a rider to reach the finish line is already a huge accomplishment. And just to figure out how tough the Erzberg mountain is, we should say that entries were around 1500, out of which 500 riders qualified for the event, and only 14 made it to the last of the 20 checkpoints.
To make things even harder for everybody, this year's edition was also plagued by heavy rain so the the riders were forced to start from a flooded mine pit. Jarvis needed 2 hours and 57 seconds to bring his Husaberg EC300 past the finish line, followed by German Andreas Lettenbichler (Husqvarna WR300) and Spaniard Gomez Cantero riding a Husaberg TE300 2T.
