FUN distance is dedicated to those who want to taste a mountain cross racing. It is not very long but we assure that legs are gonna hurt you. Constant uphill and downhill ride full of beautiful views and wild nature around. In total, there are 7 ramps with different level of difficulty. In the middle of the route, there is a refreshment stall where you can get an new energy shot. We do hope that after crossing the finishing line, lots of you will want to take a part in PRO distance next year. Then you will also feel why our motto is “hard as hell”.
A Long distance PRO is a perfect option for bikers who like challenges. Demanding route goes through not well known parts of Podhale region with the stunning Tatra mountain views, which you will be able to observe, of course if you have enough strength for it. On the route, you will face short as well as long and rigid rides with a great feeling of satisfaction after finishing the race. There is no need to count how many uphill and downhill rides there are on the route. You had better focus on pursuing your aim. We are aware how hard it is that’s why we have prepared three big refreshment stalls. In order to make the race even more attractive, there will be mountain classification with a lot of bonuses for those who achieve them. On both distances, you will be able to get water bottles and everything you need from the refreshment stall, to end up the race. There will be also special bonuses on the routes. It is worth to gather the team in order to win the race because there will be the same team classification for both distances.
After crossing the finishing line which is placed on the grounds of beautiful Mercure Kasprowy Hotel, there will be many buffets and warm tasty pasta from the hotel restaurant. While relaxing and drinking a cold drink on a sun lounger, it is worth to wait for decoration ceremony because then everyone can be the winner! Every number thrown to the ballot box will take a part in contest with valuable prizes.
We would like Tatra Road Race to be a real challenge battle for winning, facing your own weaknesses but also to provide nice memories. That’s why during and after the competition thousands of pictures will be taken. Look for your pictures and be proud of yourself. And if you missed something on the route, the pictures will show you everything.
