Bikers will gather in Vimperk on Sunday for the final race of the Šumava MTB Cup 2022, which is called the ROUVY Vimperk MTB XCO Grand Prix. The organizer of the race is the Vimperk Bike Club and the main partner of ROUVY. “For the Elite men, women, juniors and juniors categories, this race is a great opportunity to gain valuable points for the UCI international ranking at the end of the season,” said race director Jan Jedlička. That is why the entire Czech top MTB team sent applications to the race. “Representatives of the German, Estonian and Hungarian national teams will also appear at the start,” Jedlička added.
The entire program will start on Sunday, September 18 in the morning with youth races. Bikers in the U7 spawn categories will be the first to set off on their track at 9:30 a.m. Gradually, other categories will take to the track, and half an hour before noon, older students, cadets, masters and hobby men will leave the starting line.
The main races start after noon. At 12.30 p.m., the women’s, juniors’ and cadets’ categories will start the race. At 2:30 p.m. the Elite men’s and junior races will start.
