NOVÉ MĚSTO NA MORAVĚ

OPEN MTB MARATHON

RIDE BIG

OPEN MARATHON

Traditional public marathon will take place on Saturday afternoon. All the contestants will enjoy a proper marathon workout, while still not miss anything from the elite category XCC, XCM and XCO racing. The circuit is 60 km long with elevation gain of 1,250 meters: It passes the traditional natural attractions of the Vysočina Region such as Tři Studně, Devět skal or Medlov, and unlike the XCM World Cup race on Sunday it does not include the 2 most demanding technical sections of the course (around the summit of Devět skal & Lisovská). One day later the elite riders will compete here for the WC laurels!
