La Broaste

27 May 2017 09:00 Gradistea, Caldarusani Forest
Entries close in 1 day | 7 hours Reserve
Sus

At the end of May, the Caldarusani forest opens its arms in a warm embrace and invites you in to witness a marvelous explosion of nature's spirit, with all its nuances! Pedaling joyfully, gliding along shady trails, charging right through the heart of the forest, you will discover at the 5th anniversary of the La Broaste MTB marathon the very reasons that put you on a bike saddle. By then, the Sun will be smiling widely on us and we can expect to have the perfect background for cycling adventures.

 

The courses, fashioned diligently by the MPG team and Razvan Juganaru will be there to cultivate the experience, the longing for freedom and the appetite for competition. You are advised to save one drop of energy for the fun at the Finish line!

The course will be thoroughly marked and cleaned in the week prior to the event. The marking includes white-and-red BOSCH ribbon, blue-coloured signals and blue-coloured biodegradable spray.
