Top-class riders will be competing to gain victory: Jozef Ondič, Rastislav Baránek, Adam Rojček Jr., Stanislav Sehnal, Attila Liszi, Vlasťo Hynčica, Rastislav Štencel, Peter Drábik. On Sunday 26th June, downhill cycling will know the winners of the Slovak and Hungarian downhill rounds as well as the Slovak downhill champion. The bikers can also accumulate points for the prestigious World Cup, which happens in Slovakia for the first time,“ said Tomáš Vrbovský, the race director.
The 3rd round of the Slovak Downhill Cup is organised according to official rules in seven categories (women, pupils, masters, hard trail, hobby, juniors, men elite). The semi-finals take place at 11:00 am, the finals at 1:00 pm. The race takes place at the altitude of 1,491 metres near the upper station of the 6-seater chairlift of Záhradky – Rovná Hoľa B1. The attractive sports performance can be observed also from the chairlift as it runs right above the track. On Saturday, visitors can enjoy trainings and on Sunday the race itself.
