Vidraru MTB Challenge

1 Jul

Vidraru_2021-9

Or even better said, how it was the longest marathon, this year. 86km, 2400m of ascent and 4:24:46 of riding into the wild. For me was the first time racing here even though the event is at his 7th edition. I’ve heard good things about it and overall was fun, but for sure there are […]

It was sunny, but at least we had mud. Or how not to quit even if the odds are against me. This was my first race in Romania since February 2020 at Cluj Winter Race #2. So I think it was normal to be nervous. I had a good training block during the past weeks […]

It’s organized by NoMad Team and Adept Foundation in order to promote the Saxon villages of Saschiz, Viscri, Meschendorf and Cloasterf and the bike trails network that connects these villages. Everything started just before the XCO National Championships, missing more […]

I got back in Oradea after a few years for another XCO race in a “classic” area. I’ve missed an event in that area because I knew it was both fun and hard. This time wasn’t different. UCI Race, about 30C, hot, humid air, not that much shade. As I went by myself I’ve decided […]
