This stage serves the best that Stronie Śląskie area has to offer. 66km of stunning views, the best downhills and singletracks and exhausting ascents – the essence of MTB in this part of Poland. Your bike is not going to be bored – no matter what kind of ride you own: good old hardtail or a fully with a proper travel.
After the classic initial kilometers on forest roads the riders will reach the shelter at Śnieżnik Pass. Unfortunately, unlike in previous editions we will not be able to let you ride down the beautiful, technical path, as the forestry administration forbid us to do so. Instead, you're going to get down the hill along a nice section on red trail, which will compensate the loss of the classic descent. this year n the red trail leading to Śnieżnik Pass. This one is a “Challenge evergreen”, but this tear we decided to spice it up a little bit and extend it with an interesting technical section. We reach the first feed zone and shortly after - a long but rather gentle climb with some spectacular views, which leads to well-known section guiding to the Polish-Czech border.
By reaching Rykowiska, Jelenia Kopa, Jawornik Graniczny peaks and a fragment of asphalt forest road, riders will come at a stunning singletrack downhill on a green trail which will them to Bielice. Once again, twisty and skill-testing section surrounded by monumental forest. It’s a real beauty! On last 10 km before the finish line there is also one long (but fast) uphill ad a downhill to the Stronie Śląskie town center, where the race village is placed. Have a good rest before the next day!
