Sudety MTB Challenge is the oldest mountain bike stage race in this part of Europe, gathering riders from all over the world. It’s a classic 7-stage event held in a beautiful area of Sudety mountains, which offer unique and pristine trails. Pure MTB feast!
“Pure, un-buffed mountain biking. On trails that don’t thumb their nose at IMBA design, they have been developed by the passage of time, feet and hooves. Many of them have been there for centuries. You race over trails that have been used to connect villages, separate nations, fight wars, and pick mushrooms. It beats any trail centre you have visited!” says Mike Blewitt from MarathonMTB.com
Three distances. CLASSIC for the seasoned mountain bikers: prologue and six stages, 434 km of racing and 13200 m of climbing. For the less experienced ones and the newbies we got two shortened options – HALF: 3 days of racing (prologue and 2 stages) on full distance (150 km and 4700 m of elevation) and QUARTER: prologue and 2 shorter stages (100 km and 3300 m of elevation). We hope that the variety of racing options will meet every rider’s abilities and expectations.
Grzegorz Golonko, the race organizer and director says: “In the eleventh edition of the Sudety MTB Challenge we are going back to our well-proven formula: the start of the first and the finish line of the last stage will be held in the same place – Stronie Śląskie. By doing this we are minimalizing after-race logistical problems. We are also refreshing the trails – adding new sections and getting back to the ones that we used to ride ten years ago. Adrenaline rush – guaranteed!”
The race will kick-off with a prologue from Sienna to Stronie Śląskie - the latter will host the participants three times: during the prologue and 2 stages. The CLASSIC distance, after leaving the Śnieżnik Massif on Day 3, will follow a point-to-point rule, so that the contenders will be able to experience the broad spectrum of Sudety mountains, riding through towns like Bardo, Walim, Duszniki Zdrój and Stołowe Mountains National Park.
