The first ever UCI Cross-country Marathon World Cup went down in spectacular style in Nové Město na Moravě last weekend.
A stacked field of riders took to the start line in the Czech Republic for a gruelling 120km course, made all the more difficult by the addition of heavy rain. It was not enough to dampen the spirits of competitors though - who rose to the challenge to conquer the steep and technical route - and even had the energy for a sprint finish on the final straight.
And it wasn’t just elite riders who took to the course - amateur racers also got their chance thanks to the Marathon of Nové Město na Moravě, where they had the option to race the full 120km or a 60km loop.
Full results from the Marathon can be found here.
Amateur entries for the Marathon of Finale Outdoor Region and the Marathon of Morzine-Avoriaz are now open here.
