SEPTEMBER 2-9-2023

SUNRISE TO SUNSET

The Race is a fixed route, unsupported, single-stage ultra-endurance on & off-road cycling competition. It will start and finish in Bohemian-Saxon Switzerland National Park. The route will follow the ancient borderlands of Bohemia via the remnants of centuries-old road networks that still exist to this day. The riders will compete on their approximately 1300km long journey circumnavigating Bohemia, crossing back and forth along national borders, and riding through Germany, Austria, Poland, and the Czech Republic. With over 24,000m of climbing, it will be a test of each rider's abilities and a true adventure - a race able to rival ultra-endurance events on faraway continents, yet here, in the middle of Europe.

The Race's start and finish will occur at the same place we use for the Border Bash Bohemia Gravel Camp. You can expect a warm welcome in the camp full of understanding cyclists. 

 

All racers will be required to carry a satellite tracker to log their race track and aid in locating any competitor in need of emergency assistance. It will be a self-supported race. Racers will not be able to ask for or accept any help along the way. But even though much of the course will wind through less developed areas, the nature of locating The Race in the heart of Europe means there will be numerous points for public resupply close to and along the route.

There will be several checkpoints where every racer must sign in along the route. Some will also serve as refueling points, places to rest, and official time cutoffs for those riders not meeting a preset but forgiving overall time limit. 

 

The start is at sunrise Saturday, 2.9.2023, 6:18. Cut off time is Saturday, 9.9. at sunset, 19:30.

You must read the RACE MANUAL (link) before registering as a Pair or as a Solo rider.
