Mountain biking

New Age Kurling

Octopush

Mountain biking off road requires endurance, bike handling skills and self-reliance. The sport of mountain biking is roughly broken down into five categories: cross country, downhill, freeride, dirt jump and trials/street riding. What started as a sporting idea for disabled people quickly became popular with able-bodied persons too, and for the first time disabled people can play with or against able-bodied people on an equal level. As its popularity grew variations of the game were created, including Kurling Kroquet and Kurling Golf. Octopush is a non-contact sport in which two teams compete in a swimming pool to maneuver a puck sliding across the bottom of the pool into the opponent's goal with a short stick.
