AUGUST 31, 2024

The Bohemian Border Bash Race is a serious unsupported, single-stage ultra-endurance on & off-road cycling adventure. Although, it takes place in the heart of Europe, it should not be underestimated as it requires not only the ability to cycle for extended periods of time but also knowledge and experience of being self-reliant in a mountain environment. 


BBBR is an adventure where you can compete, but remember, within this journey lies the beauty of simply relishing the path you tread, embracing the moments, and finding joy in the experience itself. So, compete fiercely, yet savor every step, for in this adventure, the thrill is not just in the race but in the magnificent journey itself.

The start is at sunrise on Saturday, 31.8.2024.

Cut-off time is Saturday, 7.9. at sunset.

The Race is a fixed route, unsupported, single-stage ultra-endurance on & off-road cycling competition. It will start and end 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.
