What Will Happen From Friday To Monday
Friday, 7th February 2020
You will take a plane from your local airport to Prague and then transfer via bus to Liberec (one and a half hours). You will find your hotel is located in a very old-growth park, but it is only a few minutes to the pedestrian-only zone of the old part of town. You will check in and then perhaps take a walking tour before everyone has dinner together at the hotel. After dinner will be the first meeting during which you will find out what will happen the next day. You will probably work on your skis after the meeting.

You will have a copious breakfast at the hotel and then leave by bus to the departure stadium at Bedrichov, which is at 800 meters elevation and only 20 minutes from the town center. There you will reconnoiter part of the racing course and try out your skis and waxes. All of this will take place in a great atmosphere because we will only be doing short distances. We will have lunch in Bedrichov and then in the early afternoon, we will return to Liberec. You will get your race bibs and spend some time preparing your skis. Then dinner; next will be a meeting about the following day’s race.
Sunday, 9th February 2020
You will eat a hearty breakfast and then be transferred by bus to the departure stadium. The race start is 9:00. There will be 4,000 participants for this 50-km classic race, separated into waves of 700 to 800 skiers. The first part of the course is by no means flat. After awhile you will ski up a long climb that brings you to the top of the course at 1,050 meters. If you are lucky and the weather is good, you will have fabulous views. The downhill is rapid. When you arrive at the finish, you will be able to pick up your personal effects before taking one of the skiers’ buses back to town. You may want to stay for a while to check out the sponsors’ tents in the stadium or go back to the hotel for a sauna or a massage (supplemental fee). We will all eat together at the hotel and then sleep well afterwards.
Monday, 10th February 2020
Breakfast as usual and then a bus trip to Prague where we will all spend a couple of hours together visiting the city center before being taken to the airport. If you wish to stay longer, just ask us, because we can arrange everything.
