Gladiators take the new golden hat-trick from Gladiator Race
Another organizer who has prepared a winter race for the racers is the GladiatorRace. Traditional locations in the Josefov Fortress offered racers outside the interesting terrain also several underground passages through the dark tunnels of the local casemates. Compared to last year, there were several new barriers. The most interesting of them was replacing the classic climbing with a wooden totem with a small platform in the middle. Extending the Corny hurdle or the existence of the construction on the stairs, which has been used only for shingles so far, is definitely a promise for the future. There were several technical obstacles on the track from Shybuj, which suffered a few riders.
The whole event was started on Friday night race for about 3 km, which had a special magic in the military fortress. In the MIX category, the gladiator pair Soukup-Cimler was overtook when the second pair in a row played over 8 minutes. On Saturday, a main track about 7 kilometers long was waiting for the competitors, again dominated by the Kralupy Gladiators. First, our MIX repeated the first in its category and with a lead of 4 minutes on the other pair in the rank of once again stood the highest. Vendula Soukupová made her second race for herself and won her third weekend victory in the category of women under 39 years of age. Really nice weekend!
