Terrain:

Typical forest of Bakony. Beautiful mature forest with roads typical to the area (prone to mud when wet, easy riding at places, but may get overgrown at others). Some areas may be affected by active forestry work and trees across paths. Forest roads sensitive to rain are typical to the area, but there are fire roads with stabilised surface near the borders of the map. Old forest clearings may get overgrown by thick brambles. The majority of the area is plateau with moderate slopes, but there are steep slopes in the North part. Some courses may include significant climb.

The event is open to the public, no club membership or athlete’s licence required. For the national championships only competitors with national licence will be ranked.
Bicycle helmets are compulsory.

Competitors enter the event at their own risk. The organisers do not accept responsibility for any possible damage, accident or personal injury. Children under 18 may only enter with written parental declaration where parents accept responsibility for their children under the rules of the event. Please submit this declaration at registration.

In classes for under 18s bicycles may be checked for the condition of the breaks and the general condition of the bike. The mechanic performing the control may fix minor problems if time allows, or give advice, but not spare parts will be provided.

Bicycle shops are located in the vicinity of the event in Pápa, Ajka, and Veszprém, but they close Saturday noon. After that spare parts may (or may not) be available in Intersport and the newly opened Decathlon in Veszprém.

Athletes are responsible for damage caused by them. Each athlete accepts these rules by submitting an entry to the event!

Athletes accept with their entries that photos and videos may be taken during the competitions that may be published over the internet and in other media channels!
There are low grade public roads and bicycle lanes in the competition area. The highway code applies to everybody riding along or crossing these roads and cycle lanes!

The exact location and the completion distances are subject to change.

Accommodation

In theory, the Event Centre is a camping for 200 people, but currently it is out of business. It may be possible that we can arrange accommodation here for 120 to 130 people in rooms for 2 people, and cottages for 6 and 10 people. There may be places for 10 to 15 tents and a few motorhomes. We try to secure this accommodation possibility, but so far it has not been confirmed.

Large number of commercial accommodation possibilities are available within 20km of the Event Centre.

Meals

There is a restaurant right at the Event Centre, and a pub / street food place 100m away near the parking area. These businesses will be informed to prepare for larger number of clients over the weekend. More details will be available soon.
