The first post-Covid-19 race was held in the Czech Republic and Kulhavy finished in eighth position

While most European countries still live in semi-confinement and do not know exactly when they will be able to return to competitive sport, the Czech Republic seems to be taking a different approach to this pandemic.

The Nova Cup Cyklovyza was held on Saturday 16 May. A mountain bike race where 215 participants competed on a 35 km route in Hradec Kralove, located in the North of the country.

About the security measures adopted we will tell you that in this case the participants only had to wear a mask while they stayed together at the start waiting for the race to begin. A few seconds before the start they took off their masks and the race was held as it had been until now.

On the starting line was former Olympic champion Jaroslav Kulhavy who finally finished in eighth position.
