Carpathian MTB Epic – #WHOSTOPSYOU

Four days of mountain biking through what is probably one of last truly wild regions of Europe. We’ll be facing the challenges of the Carpathian Epic in Romania. #whostopsyou

After last year’s #FromCoast2Coast Enduro adventure through Spain, we’re now going to take you to Romania! For 4 days, MAGURA employees Roland and Dominik will challenge the wild Carpathians – and they’ll be sending us daily reports on and on Instagram @magura_official.

Four days of flat-out racing – 173 km – 8050 metres of climbing

Wild, rugged, epic! Anyone who knows the Carpathians is well aware of what awaits the riders on the four stages. Instead of fashioned trails, the Carpathian MTB Epic is all about the rough side of Mother Nature. Instead of several metres of forest highway, the riders have to deal with more than 50% singletrack. This land of Dracula attracts biking athletes with mountain bike conditions as they should be.

The stages

The Romanian MTB legend Razvan Juganaru is the acting godfather of the 4 stages through the Carpathians. The race starts with a 10 km, short cross-country prologue in time trial mode, then moves on to three tough marathon stages. The Carpathian MTB Epic boasts UCI S2 status, so the riders are shooting for world ranking points!

Prologue10 km – 550 metres of climbing – 60% singletrack

Stage 143 km – 2150 metres of climbing – 50% singletrack

Stage 260 km – 2850 metres of climbing – 40% singletrack

Stage 360 km – 2500 metres of climbing – 50% singletrack

This is US!

We’re not pros. We’re just like you. Two enthusiastic mountain bikers with a 40-hour working week, who use every minute of their free time to challenge trails on their bikes and unreel the kilometres. We are Dominik (MAGURA Content Manager) and Roland (MAGURA Team Leader AM Sales).

We are leaving our families and desks behind, putting a note of absence in our mailboxes and abandoning our usual environment. #whostopsyou?

Although both of us have already gained experience with stage races and national championships, 4 days of flat-out racing are something very special. The desire to test our MAGURA products to the limit ourselves and our own adventurous spirits will be driving us onwards – and upwards!

So… let us inspire you – follow us through the Carpathians at #WHOSTOPSYOU! – The MAGURA Experience 2.0
