Challenge 2021 - Postponed to 2022
Due to the long 3rd lockdown, a realisation in July 2021 is not feasible in order to do justice to the participants and interested parties as well as to our own claim. The preparation of a Gravel and MTB Endurance Race through 6 countries over 2,800 km requires guarantees and uniformity of regulations in international tourism and travel. These are still very different in the countries: accommodation situation, entry/exit conditions as well as proof of previous stays are currently a daily as well as extremely dynamic process. This flood of bureaucracy and dynamics makes it impossible to foresee uniform conditions for July. Our partners in the Eastern European countries were hit all the harder by the pandemic situation and the restrictions and are beginning to return to normality in small steps.
Thus, we let the planning mature further and announce the renewed implementation with many innovations for the summer of 2022. The start in Bayreuth will be on 10 July 2022, and in Ostrava 7 days later, on 17 July 2022.
All registrations for 2021 are automatically changed to 2022.
We thank you for your understanding and hope to have made the decision in your sense.
See you in 2022,
