The Intersport-Marathon Series starts in May with the Author Šela Marathon in Lipník nad Bečvou. Bike Prague powered by Genesis will be the second event of the series. The next two series races will be run in Hungary – namely the Crosskovacsi Marathon and Duna Marathon. In July, the series will move to Austria, where the most famous race of the entire series, the Salzkammergut Trophy, will be run. Here racers will face 211 kilometres and seven thousand ascent metres! The last two events in the series will be held in Slovakia, where the Škoda Stupava Trophy and Škoda Horal MTB Marathon will be run.
The three best achieved results will be figured into the overall ranking of the series. The fair points system factors a loss into the winning time, the winning time is multiplied by the race coefficient divided by the racer’s achieved time. More information is available here.
