BIRELL MTB NIGHT RACE

Traditional Birell MTB Night Race will be held on Saturday evening. It's that kind of a race that you can push hard from start to finish; or rather enjoy it in the training tempo, but with maximum fun! The race takes place on lightened biathlon tracks and many participants often start in bizarre costumes and show off some truly amazing stunts. But there are also some guys, who take it 100% seriously: the front of the pack is pushing it full throttle! Don't hesitate to take part even if you want to take it relaxed and without a costume, you definitely won't be alone out there!

The race circuit is over 3 km long with wide and paved surface. The race is held for 40 minutes + 1 lap. At the start line you will meet World Cup team mechanics and other team members including even the Team Managers of renowned names. Birell MTB Night Race is definitely something you should't miss! And if you don't participate as an athlete, a role of spectator is a must!

Ordering on the start grid
The first wave of 50 riders will have a prioritized position on the start grid. Prioritized riders will be chosen by the organizer. All remaining riders will order in the start area upon their arrival and the instructions of race marshalls. Prioritized position on the start grid may be required only with the online registration until May 17 and must be accompanied with a proper clarification of riders’ good shape.
