For the first time in 2014, Eurobike Demo Day had been held directly on the exhibition grounds. Again in 2015, Demo Day for trade visitors and journalists took place on the Exhibition Parking Lot East. The test conditions in the adjacent forest, the dirt roads and the streets surrounding the exhibition grounds, were in top form to ride.
The day before the show, top international brands present the wares and products they have been developing for the coming season. Last year, 2,642 trade visitors and 784 journalists from all over the world came to Demo Day to try the latest road bikes, ebikes, recumbents, folding bikes and mountain bikes. This year the numbers were even bigger. Here are some pictures of the things that we found interesting and fun.
