Results after four stages (2007/07/08)

Very slowly recovering from the last night party, I am almost able to put the preliminary results online. Naturally, results of the time trial along Bozkov channel (LUMRD Award) are there.

Available under Start list. All relevant information can also be found under the particular day.


Details for each stage were added to the Instruction bulletin(2007/07/01)

Bulletin is available under Instruction bulletin.


Instruction bulletin was relased(2007/06/27)

Bulletin is available under Instruction bulletin or directly here.


Venue change (E1) and scale change (E2) (2007/06/27)

  1. Change of E1 venue
    We have managed to locate the first stage near the Centre, there is no need to go anywhere. Its finish is going to be in the Centre and you will get to the start by following streamers. Map Kokotsko, located about 9 km from the Centre, can thus be used and you can practice there on Monday or Tuesday.
  2. Scale change in E2 (long)
    The forest is large and it would be a shame no to use it. And in order to fit the map to a reasonable paper size (A3), we had to change the scale to 1:20 000. All of you who will participate at WC surely welcome this change, as the long there will be on the same map scale.
    Isn't it the right action!?

Details in instruction bulletin.

Preface or invitation by pilsner bikers H&H(2007/03/10)

Hi bikers,

First of all, we would like to thank you for your positive response to 5-days 2005, that you and we fully enjoyed.

We agreed already during the first moments after the races were over that we must reward your diligent approach to racing and to our cultural programm by organizing another event in the near future. Slightly nostalgic memories may be recalled by having a look at pictures 2005.

Time is running amazingly fast and so you are now invited to the next MTBO 5days (2007), where we have chosen for you a new nice centre not far from civilization (25km E from Pilsen), but still hidden in beautiful forest that were just made for great races.

The organizing team had to conquer a scary number of Pilsen beer glasses, wear out uncountable chains and sprockets before a decision was made about the choice of new interesting terrains, that would later please the heart of a competitor who fell in love with biking with a map.

The proven model of a sequence of 5 stages was preserved. You can look forward to new terrains in the forests of the count Coloredo-Mansfeld, where the king stage (Czech Championship on Long course) will take place, and in Letkov near Pilsen (where bike marathon Giro is organized) A real supersprint in Bory park, where o-footers fought for medals from academic world championship in sprint three years ago, awaits you too.

We haven't forgotten the triatlon relay whose fighting spirit easily surpassed the Ice-hockey world championships finals.

Three reserved campgrounds located next to each other will surely unite our peloton and will provide enough place for romantics as well as for those thirsty for entertainment in the evening hours. There will be a worthy piece of it ready for them every evening.

We will do our best for you to enjoy the 5days MTBO ride as much as possible and will thus give us motivation for organizing another one soon.

Looking forward to seeing you in Habr,

Ondra Háša Hašek & Honza Hasák Hasman

We are excited (2007/01/20)

and having fun. Doing it all for gladly and for you

Information (2007/01/17)

Celebrating Hasák's birthday, we have also created information sheet for you. We are negotiating with owners and officials to obtain a permission for using interesting terrains of national park Radeč, pressing and pulling the owners of 3 great camps and contacting artists to fill the evening programs. Soon, we will start practicing ourselves.


Our orgasmators-enthusiasts have checked out the terrains and possible courses, see photos, and came back excited, raving, and peeing from excitement.


The extended committee (ÚV KOS) and orgasmating committee has by a tight majority (9:0) decided about organizing the 5days event.
