beskidy mtb trophy is the hardest stage race in eastern europe.
I was at the beskidy mtb trophy (http://eng.mtbtrophy.webworld.pl/) in poland this year. Should be much harder (technical, steep etc.. real mtb stuff) as any other mtb race in europe (is the hardest I have ever ridden). Perhaps also in the world.
i also did http://mtbtrophy.com/ in 2009 and 2010. 2009 was way harder! on the 2nd day i spent over 7 hours in the saddle being within top 100 or even top 50. they simplified 2010 edition to avoid cutting off 30-50% people by time limit. race is fantastic indeed! immaculate MTB terrain, brutally technical, fun, hard, well organized, quite affordable in comparison to transalps and alike = overall fantastic MTB race!
Кто-то еще сомневается, что там имеет смысл побывать?
