Main characteristic of Pro version:

  • the third stage of The Star of South 2018
  • first serious challenge – right after start, 2-kilometer long uphill asphalt road, altitude difference200 m
  • on Makowska Mountain Pro trail goes along blue track: very interesting and diversified as well as surprisingly fast
  • between 3rd and 7th kilometer – please stay focused as track will have a lot of surprises and it ends with steep uphill road to Mioduszyna
  • the best place for rest and regeneration: 7th-10th kilometer along Skawa river
  • from 12th kilometer – a bit technical ride on red track with wheel-ruts, slaloms between puddles and gravel road
  • attention – downhill road from Chelm is not that innocent as it looks. Watch out for deep-hidden wheel-ruts
  • 17th kilometer – fast ride through Budzow village with dangerous curves waiting in there
  • Long and surprisingly challenging uphill road to Makowska Mountain – after a bit of typical steep uphill drive on concrete plates, there will be wheel-ruts, narrowing trails, sand
