2019 is just around the corner and it's time to present a new edition of the Marathon Cup, one of the most recognized and successful bike marathon competitions in our territory. It premiered on the calendar in 2006 and has been a benchmark in mid-distance events since then. His philosophy hasn't changed: offer attractive routes to have leading but is accessible for bikers who are starting in this sport. The routes have been improved to make them more fun for all its participants.
After years of competing as a national championship, in 2019 the Marathon Cup BTT takes the international leap and two of its tests will be registered in the UCI calendar, within the UCI Marathon Series, the reference stamp within this type of tests. With this there will be new advantages for bikers. From the distribution of points for the world rankings to the organization guarantee offered by an UCI test, without forgetting the arrival of the cash prizes to these points.
Each of the 5 tests that make up the championship has two different route options. An environment of 65 kilometers, for those who want to spend more time on the saddle, and another of 35 kilometers, ideal to get into the world of mountain bike tests gradually. The participation of junior category bikers will be allowed on the short route.
In addition, two different categories are proposed in both routes. The Pro, destined to the pure and hard competition, and the Open, for those who prefer to forget the pressure of the chronometer. The Open category allows the participation with cyclotourist license or one day license. In total, 4 different participation options so that everyone can have their space within the Marathon Cup.
