Dear Sports friends!

02.03.2011

The 13th edition of AUTHOR bikemarathon Súľovské skaly is drawing nearer. SCK CYKLO TOUR Súľov and the village Súľov – Hradná in cooperation with media and merchandise partners once again prepared for you an attractive programme and lots of valuable prizes. So don’t forget to note the event date: 18.06.2011! The event is a part of the Valašsko-považskej MTB series 2011. The official patron of the 13th edition is the Chairman of Žilina self-governing region - Ing. Juraj Blanár. We strongly believe that the 2 last year’s “water calamity“ won’t happen again and that we will together break the magical barrier of 1000 participants this year J. But before you arrive in Súľov, keep an eye on our website where you can find up-to-date information, the internet registration system, detailed course description, numerous reports and photographs from previous editions.

One of the top news of this year’s edition is the extension of evaluated categories from 26 to 29. We returned to separated evaluation of competitors with ELITE A, B and U23 licenses, and within the 48 km and 25 km routes, we split the most populous men’s age range to 19-29 years and 30-39 years. On the contrary, we merged women’s categories at the 88 km route, because in the last 4 years we had only 2 or 3 women at the start.

You can once again reorder the cycling jersey from 2008, a limited amount of cycling bib shorts from 2009 and arm + leg warmers from 2010. The supplier is again the sportswear producer NYNA. All souvenirs are ordered exclusively via the e-mail to the organizer. The order should include name, address and a telephone contact of the ordering person, the sizes and number of pieces of the souvenirs, total sum to be paid for the souvenirs and the payment method. The deadline for the order is 1.6.2011! You'll be able to pick up your souvenirs upon the presentation.

We also prepared for you a 2011 memorial shirt. The price of the shirt – 6 € is not included in the registration fee and the participants will pay for it upon the receipt of the shirt at the presentation. You can find all information on our products in the Souvenirs section of our web. The closing date for souvenir orders is 01.06.2011 !

Each participant can again expect a practical spare tube by AUTHOR. Before the start you can fill your bottles in the stand of AMINOSTAR who will provide the X-POWER energy drink. The same company will also supply you with present X-POWER. The company TOP TREND Piešťany will also supply you sample of SPORTIQUE cosmetics, namely the protective Century Riding Cream.

Just like one year ago there will be a separation of the starters on the 48 km course into 2 waves. The first wave will be intended for 300 riders with higher placing ambitions. Please mark you intention to start in the first wave in the remark section of the online registration system by stating your finish result from the last 2-3 years! Time is measured for each starting wave separately, but results are common for both waves.

The participants, their supporting crews and the spectators can look forward to an eventful accompanying programme – the trade fair, horse-riding, cycle-skill rides for kids, KOFOLA soft drink and POPPER beer contests. We can already tell you that you can look forward to the performances of the girls sing and dance formation HOYDENS. The evening will belong to the concert music band. So don’t hesitate and register yourself

Attention! The courses lead through protected natural preserve and therefore we ask you to be careful to the nature and its inhabitants. The access to some parts of the course is permitted only during the bike marathon!

On behalf of the organizers from SCK CYKLO TOUR Súľov I believe that AUTHOR bikemarathon Súľovské skaly will remain in your favour and by taking part you will fulfil the idea of this event: … this is also a way to a healthier life! We look forward to your participation!
