Funduro Cup Ruka 2022
Ruka's race routes are moderately gentle in profile, but rather long. The ground is rocky in some of the routes (small, sharp rocks), which is worth considering when choosing tires for the race. The difficulty levels of the trails are blue or red. There are several different styles of lifts, in addition to which there is also pedaling sections in the race.
On Wednesday evening, there will be a compulsory rider meeting, after which one stage will be conducted "blindly". In Thursday's race, each stage will be run twice in the prescribed order (unless otherwise stated later). Under 10 years and 10-13 years classes can run stages twice (aiming for a better time) or only once if they wish. More detailed information about the race routes and the stages required in each class will be published during the race week.
Read the competition rules with thought, as breaking the rules can result in a time penalty. The participant information contains important information for all riders to compete and a link to the video for first-timers. First aid telephone number during the competition is 041-4883851
