About the race

Krušnoston 2018

The 9th Cycle Road Marathon, ready to welcome all lovers of road cycling.

On the map of the marathon enterprises, Krušnoton filled in 2010 a vacancy in the north of Bohemia. Its length of 250 km is among the longest and with an elevation of 4900 m is the highest. The starting point is Teplice, a town ideally situated between the ridge of the Ore Mountains and the peaks of the Bohemian Central Mountains.

A short route with a length of 113 km and an altitude of 1500 m ascends to the ridge of the Krušné hory mountains, not a difficult climb to Komárka, but a lighter exit from Dubí to Cínovec along cycling trails No. 3087 and then to the left after No. 23 through the beautiful climb "Strade Lithium". From Cínovka follows the last year's trail to Želénky, from where it continues to the foothills of the Central Bohemian Mountains this year, in order to reach Teplice via Hostomice, Ohníč, Hradiště, Úprainy, Nechvalice, Nové Dvory and Bystřany. We believe that the modified Krušnoton route will have at least the same experience as the previous one.

The long and middle tracks are led by the most beautiful stretches of both mountains. In the introduction, after last year's adjustment, we are returning to the standard, to the passage of Chabařovice and Přestanov. Both routes then follow the last line up to Milešov, where they will re-cross the Černčické sedlo, descend to Lelov, in Bořislav will join the national road I / 8, they will go down to Teplice, but in Úpořiny will still ascend to the right to Nechvalice to Teplice reached through Nové Dvory and Bystřany.

Tens of kilometers of mountain passages with far-flung views, along with steep slopes and long slopes, enhance the vast landscape that racers have to hold in their feet. The districts of Teplice, Most, Litoměřice, Ústí nad Labem and Děčín will be witnesses of true bicycle beauty, as well as suffering.

Weather forecast: cloudy to cloudy, temperatures 20 to 24 degrees, wind up to 2 m / s.
