We have all seen just how good it is to race in Kitzbühel and how the LOC there have dedicated themselves to delivering the best quality race possible. Well, for 2018, they have gone for a new format.
Here is the news, direct from the LOC.
The LOC Kitzbühel is happy to announce that the Junior European Cup in Kitzbühel will go for a challenging race format in 2018. Super-fast, dynamic and packed.
A customized, multi-lap race course allows coaches and spectator to be up-close with the athletes.
