Bohemian Border Bash Race 

May 29. - June 5. 2021

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, and 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, riding through Germany, Poland, and the Czech Republic. With over 22,000m 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 start and the finish of The Race will take place at the very same place we use for The Camp.

 

All racers will be required to carry a satellite tracker, both to log their race track and to 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 along the route where every racer must sign in. Some will also serve as refueling points, places to rest, as well as official time cutoffs for those riders not meeting a preset but forgiving overall time limit.

It is very important, that you will read the RACE MANUAL before you register as a Pair or as a Solo rider.
