World Medical MTB Championships – Zgierz 2014

We are honored to invite you to our 1st World Medical MTB Championships that will take place in Zgierz, Poland on June 21, 2014. The race will be held in an XCO formula, on a demanding, but highly enjoyable course, which hosted 16th Polish Medical Championships in 2013. Race itself will be accompanied by a family picnic, with many attractions for both kids and their parents. We are looking forward to seeing you there!

THE IDEA
mediCup is an event not only to create opportunities for competitive mountain biking enthusiasts. Above all, mediCup is a health promotion and active leisure manifesto. Combining sport and medicine is what we deal with, as part of medicyclig.eu project. Our games are one of the forms of reaching out to public.
