Carpathian MTB Epic – We made it!

An event to remember! Our employees Roland and Dominik finished the Carpathian Epic. A rough fight in line with our motto #whostopsyou!

Finally! We made it and finished the Carpathian MTB Epic 2019! Four days, 178km and more than 8000m of climbing through one of the last wild regions in Europe, through hours of rain and tons of mud.

As if the mountain stages with more than 2000m climbing each day aren’t hard enough, tough weather conditions made it even harder. This stage race was about exceeding one’s own limits in true mountain conditions. The Romanian organisators put together rugged trails, most of which were never explored by riders, stunning views and breathtaking climbs. But pouring rain made it even more epic. Everyone of us had to face their own challenge, constantly in line with our motto #whostopsyou.

Especially the final stage will not be easy to forget! Not only was it the longest, but it tested to the maximum the strength of all riders, who faced in the previous days the capricious weather and routes with a high degree of technical difficulty. Rain and mud forced the riders to push their bikes for many kilometers. A real hardness test after more than 10 hours of racing. Our AM Sales Team Leader Roland rewarded himself with another third place in the stage ranking of his age group.

Wild, rugged, Epic!
Roland making his way through the carpathians.
Although the track was marked with signals, every rider carried a navigation computer to find safe to the checkpoints and feed zones.
Every stage greeted our riders with more than 50% of singletracks.
Rain, Rain, Rain.

Fun in the mud!
Crashes are part of the game. Glad that our bikes and parts made it through 4 days of epic mountain biking!
