The third biggest MTB event in the world, Tartu MTB Marathon will take place next week. Today’s pre-events of the marathon, the official training and the Tartu MTB Marathon Relay attracted an impressive 581 cyclists to the course.

Pre-events took place between the small towns of Otepää and Elva, as next week’s main races do.

Today’s programme kicked off with the relay marathon. This year a total of 53 teams with three members took part in it, which is 20 more than last year. There were some teams that consisted of top Estonian cyclists and some of the teams just enjoyed a nice summer day.

Also, the Tartu MTB Marathon’s official training took place. According to the preliminary data, 422 cyclists checked out the course before the main event. That’s about 120 more than last year.
