This Saturday, June 11, in Świeradów-Zdrój, the Cat® Enduro MTB Series will take place, the first edition of this year’s enduro series. Nearly 300 competitors from Poland, the Czech Republic and Germany are on the already closed list. Nevertheless, the Sunday mini-race for children and outings with local guides promise to be just as interesting.
Organizers and competitors are already counting down the hours until the next weekend, when Świeradów-Zdrój will be conquered by cyclists. Many “highlights” are on the starting list, including medalists from the National Enduro Championship. All participants, divided into 14 start groups, will be presented in the competition city, where they will receive a time measurement chip, a map and sign the start list, then they will leave, according to the schedule, from the first special. In total, the competition will take place over four stages, where the competition will take place in an “on sight” formula, that is to say without the possibility of becoming familiar with them and training on them. Each of them has its own unique and diverse character, hence their different names:
OS 1 – Makita Trail
OS 2 – Elements (for best good OS for Elements Hotel & SPA)
OS 3 – Varta Power (special prizes from Varta for the best on this OS)
OS 4 – Izerriders
The racing groups will have to cover the four special stages, the total length of which, with the routes, will be around 37 km, which will give a total of just over 1,600 meters of elevation gain. In turn, the Hobby groups will have the first three stages to cover (they will NOT go to SS 4). Their competition will end after about 32 km and about 1,200 meters of elevation. A regeneration buffet is planned, after the second special, located in the competition city, which will be supplied, among other things, with Nutrend, Kresto and Lech Free products. In the same place, after the end of the competition, a regenerating meal will await the participants.
The highlight of the one-day competition will be the decoration of the winners, which will begin at 6:00 p.m. The organizers announce a raffle of attractive prizes – also among the fans, so it is worth coming to the Spa Park and rewarding the best with applause, and they can also win something. For the players, but especially the fans and residents of Świeradów-Zdrój, several sponsors of the competition will appear with stands. You will be able to test Makita tools, check the durability of Cat® phones, see the offer of Five Seasons, Blue Mountain Resort, Elements Hotel & SPA, Park Hotel and Hotel Buczyński. Also, the stand of the Boskie Karkonoskie foundation, British Whyte bikes and a Randger R560 4×4 test camper van.
On Sunday, we invite you to a mini-race for children from 3 to 6 years old. Participation is free, the only condition is the bike and the helmet. Registration will take place in the race town from 10:00 a.m., and the race for the youngest will start at noon. At the same time, at 10:00 a.m., local enduro fans will take visitors on a journey through the unknown trails of Jizera.
