The TC2019 track represents crème de la crème of this part of the Carpathian Mountains - we shed tears while clawing through the track! We cried because we longed for the stunning vistas, we cried because of the overwhelming beauty of nature, borderline bicycling exhaustion... and pain. Make friends with pain before you start the race, because during the challenge you can count on him to turn up.
The track runs through the demanding Beskidy Mountains with Babia Góra Trails, Orawa and Podhale with an omnipresent panorama of the Tatra Mountains. Before you reach Pieniny Mountains, you will visit MTB heaven. The astounding Singletrails Lechnica will guide you down to the valley only to let you enjoy fleeting moments of solace coming from the cool Dunajec River Gorge - now it almost gets easy! Ultraepic Beskid Sądecki and secluded Beskid Niski, and when you start feeling you're getting close to the finish line... You come round in Bieszczady, on the part of the track that was specially permitted for TC2019 contestants by the national forest guards. The panorama of Połoniny Mountain Range, seen from Dwernik Kamień (1002 m.a.s.l) will certainly take your breath away and slightly delay your triumphant appearance on the finish line. Keep being on the lookout for the bisons - you're bound to see them! Don't believe us? We'll talk about it in Muczne with a glass of the most delicious beer you'll ever drink - The Transcarpatia 2019 Finisher brew!
