Maats Explorer: Gravel Race

Reguliere prijs €30.00

Sunday 20/12/2020, Lage Vuursche

The year 2020 has been a crazy and different year for everything and everyone. Most (cycling) events could not take place or in a very different form, including the Maats events. Nevertheless, we want to end 2020 with a bang. That is why we will go into the woods on Sunday 20 December for a cool gravel route through the Gooi and over the Utrechtse Heuvellrug. Of course completely #Corona-proof.

We have put together a route that will be ridden in pairs. The team that does this fastest is the winner and wins cool prizes and can call itself Maats Gravel Kings for a year. The results will be announced on our website and socials on Sunday evening.

It will look like this:

  • The route (85 km) consists of a mix of gravel roads, forest paths, compact gravel and asphalt and contains little to no technical single tracks.
  • Start and Finish: Buiten in de Kuil, Lage Vuursche
  • Starting between 09:00 and 11:00 (you will receive your start slot a few days in advance) Because everyone gets a different start time, we limit social contact.
  • 25 Teams of two people
  • Route is shared 24 hours before start
  • Weapon of Choice: Gravel bike, (fast) MTB or racing bike with a minimum of 32 mm
  • Cost per team: € 30
  • For this you get: GPS route, coffee before start and take-away beer and burger at the finish

If the event cannot take place due to Covid-19 developments, we will let you know in time and you will refund your ticket.
