Trials of the tracks
As the tracks are going through strictly protected nature reserve the only way to visit them prior to the race is to attend the track visit events which we organize a month before the competition. If you want to attend this event please contact László Paulovits.
Please protect the nature and please walk and cycle only on the pathways.
During the line viewing hazardous gullies, twigs and deep vehicle trails may occur therefore please cycle carefully. These problems will be fixed by the competition.
During the competition we set up a technical zone in the garden of Tisza castle right after one of the refreshing points on the opposite side.
