The Czech 4X Cup!

The Czech 4X Cup was here before the fourcross became official at the UCI Mountainbike World Cup. Now we are going already into the volume number six, thanks the new title sponsor this year called also the Ruhrbau 4X Cup 2007.

Some series call themselves “the biggest 4X series in Europe”. All right then. But do they also have two of top three World Cup riders on the starting list? We don’t think so, haaa (peace Chris;) With two times World Champion and two times World Cup winner Michal Prokop of Author, Kamil Tatarkovic of Kona Les Gets, plus other top dogs on board, to get into the Czech 4X Cup final means to have damn brilliant World Cup level skills.

Just come and try! The first of five rounds of Ruhrbau 4X Cup 2007 is just round the corner. We will start in Moravian town Prerov on forthcoming weekend with training on Saturday June 2nd and race day on Sunday June 3rd.

Then we will have three races in August. Round #2 will take a place in another Moravian town Sumperk. Week after that, for the very first time the Czech 4X Cup moves across the Czech boarders even. We are happy to announce that to many top European 4X riders well known track in Polish Szczawno Zdrój will host round #3. Another two weeks later will be Prague the place to come! The only 4X track inside any world’s capital, called Polis XIII that was opened with huge SEAT 4X Masters in May 2006 is ready to host top 4X riders again. The last round will be in Litomerice, not so far from northern of Prague. The course there was changed before each race but always the top of what we have here in the Czech Republic.
