As the 2017 season is coming to an end, we thought we would announce the dates of the competitions within next year’s MTB Triad. And to give you more motivation for the coming winter, when the workouts are a little harder to digest, we also come up with some novelties.

First we have a new logo that we hope you enjoy. We have been thinking about this change for a long time, but now we have finally had the courage to do it. We also have a new web domain, so from now on you will find all the information on the www.triadamtb.ro.

As for the competitions we will have in 2017 four days of competition, with many xcs: XCC, XCO, XCP, XCM. The two competitions within the 2018 MTB Triad will be practically each with 2 days of competition.

We start on April 21st and 22nd with the “Avrig Mountain Bike Race”. For Saturday we are preparing a new format based on the Cross Country Short Track but with a few elements of our own. Also on Saturday we will have the competitions for children and on Sunday morning the start for the marathon and point-to-point where the routes will be largely similar to those of 2017. Saturday’s times will stack up with Sunday’s to give the final standings of the competition. The main location remains Brukenthal Palace Avrig.

For July 21-22 we have scheduled the “Geiger MTB Challenge” also at the Platoș Păltiniș Arena as in the last two years. Many have reproached us for taking the Olympic Cross Country off the menu so we decided to put it back next year. So XCO on Saturday and XCP/XCM on Sunday, again with a final ranking based on the cumulative times of the two days of competition. Sunday’s trails will undergo some changes just to take you to other trails in the area, without majorly affecting the overall dates of each route. We plan to introduce a shorter route on which the less experienced ones and children over 10 years old will be able to compete.
