From Borgo pass where the legend of Dracula was born, we will pedal towards the Rodnei Mountains National Park, to arrive next to Bucovina, another historical region of Romania. Here we will immerse ourselves in its unique culture surrounded by fairy tale landscapes and enjoying its rich gastronomy.
From Bucovina we will return to the land of Dracula, following the route of the Mary Theresa road – the Austrian Empire queen, crossing the Calimani National Park, one of the wildest and least populated extensions of Europe where we will definitely enter a journey into the past.
Inspired by one of our tourist trips with the addition of the competitive format and the expansion of the number of participants.
The Transcarpathian MTB Raid is a test of 5 stages of resistance with a playful and tourist character that allows us to fully enjoy one of the wildest and most exotic areas of Europe.
For this, the timed sections will not exceed 25% of the total mileage.
The link sections, we will do them in groups accompanied by local guides that will offer us an immersive experience in the purest Carpathian Dreams style.
We will be 50 bikers who will live an epic adventure, which goes beyond bike tours, enjoying after the stages of cultural experiences, traditional accommodations and a rich cuisine that can only be found in the Carpathians.
We bet on a new competitive format, there will be two parallel competitions with important prizes for the winners:
ALL AGAINST ALL, a category for all ages and sexes, the time of the winner will be calculated through a system of statistical compensation, based on the differences taken from the average of different UCI tests of the 2018 season, where participants make the same route. We will distribute € 1550 in prizes.
Only the most complete biker will wear the Total Biker 2020 maillot for a year, for this he will have to accumulate the maximum points in the 6 tests he will face during the race, the most important being the vote for the best partner. The prize will be to return to the Carpathians next season to enjoy a guided tour with Carpathian Dreams valued at € 1500
2019 is the first edition of the Transcarpathian MTB Raid, this test is organized by Carpathian Dreams together with the Sport Club Bike Experiences and MTB BN. Although it is our first competitive stage race, we have extensive experience organizing guided tours and other sporting events.
We work with the firm intention that this race becomes a reference of the tourist raids in stages.
We believe in responsible tourism as a generator of short and long-term benefits in local communities that in turn have an impact on the care and protection of the natural environment.
Our main objective is to continue to value this area of the Carpathians as a destination for responsible tourism.
We invite you to join the Adventure!!
