There will be 4 new routes this year on BikeFest Marathon!
You can look forward to riding the new tracks that will expose the beautiful surroundings of Považský Inovec. You'll see old places from a different perspective. New tracks include also new and attractive locations. The route of the marathon connects the foothills of Považský Inovec with the ridge and the iconic lookout tower on Panská Javorina. We kept the well-known singletrack sections on the route, which are very popular in the final phase of the marathon. The route connects beautiful locations in the northern part of the mountain range with the village of Kálnica. 

Hundreds of riders of all ages take part in the BikeFest Marathon every year. As in SCOTT Enduro Race, the marathon does not lack the category of electric bicycles. That is divided into two categories: 

  • bicycles must meet the PEDELEC standard, which means that the maximum rated power of the electric bicycle is 250 W and the engine is equipped with a speed limiter at 25 km / h. 
  • e-bikes that do not meet this standard start in the OPEN category.

Competitors will have refreshment stations with liquids, fruit, or bars available on the tracks. A service and ambulance will be available at each refreshment stop. A mobile rescuer will also be at the disposal during the race.
