TROPHY FOR THE BEST EVENT OF 2019 SEASON GOES TO NMNM. AGAIN!
Trophy for the best event of 2019 Mercedes-Benz UCI Mountain Bike Cross-country World Cup goes once again to Nové Město na Moravě. It seems to be unbelievable, but Nové Město has already won this award for the 8th time consecutively with being voted as the best event of the season in all years when it was included in the World Cup calendar. 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2017, 2018 and 2019 means 8 trophies in a row (excluding 2016 when the World Championships took place in Nové Město instead of the World Cup).
Indeed there were many high-quality events this season, but the panel of reviewers which includes riders, teams, sponsors and other stakeholders felt that the event in Nové Město na Moravě was the best when taking into consideration a number of different factors and the overall quality of organization.
Petr Vaněk, the OC leader of the event comments: "I have to admit that the competition between the organizers is growing year by year. Some of the events this year were truly spectacular. I was lucky to attend 2 World Cup rounds in Andorra and French Les Gets and both of these events were brilliant. Therefore I am really proud of our organizing team which was able to succeed in such a strong competition. It is an honor!"
