Race description

EWS qualifications race. On Saturday there will be training on the schedule followed by the first stage in the afternoon which will be held in Petzen bike park (AUT). A long stage at Petzen will be waiting for the riders. On Sunday the main race day with three more stages will be held at trail park Jamnica, with the main venue at EKO Hotel Koroš.

On Saturday the whole event will begin with the course check and welcome coffe in the morning at EKO Hole Koroš. After the course check in Jamnica trail park, there will be enough time to head to the Petzen bike park (aprox. 20-30min car drive). There will be a first stage of the race held at 16.00, but first the riders will have time to check the course.

The first rider will start at 16.00 at the top of the stage, so riders will need to be carefull to head up with the cablecar soon enough. Race office will be held at the bottom lift station before the race.

After the race there will be enough time for some relaxation and party.

On Sunday the whole circus will move to EKO Hotel Koroš at Jamnica trail park. In the morning the race office will be open for any open questions about the numbers and results, while at 10.00 the first rider will head up to the stage 1 start. Three stages will be a nice challenge for the riders for the day. Aproximately the race will end around 15.00

Ofcourse no one will need to hurry back home after the race, so stay relaxed :)
