Reference map of course from the year 2014 event:
There will be some changes to the route. Place for start/ finish is different. The course is about 24 km long and the total ascent is about 450 meters. 45 km course is a 2 x 24 km loop with a special challenge . Most of the course is a somewhat narrow single track. There are some short road sections in between.
There will for sure be enough challenges to even a very experienced mountain biker. However, the course can be completed also with just basic mountain biking experience. No competition experience or license is needed. Use of a helmet is compulsory.
A skilled & very fit rider can complete the course with a rigid mountain bike, but we do recommend a proper suspended mountain bike. There is no insurance provided to the participants from the organizers, so every participant should take care of his/her own insurance.
