Every year, the passion for outside sports and the love for nature bring together more and more bikers, eager to escape the daily responsibilities and the humdrum of the big cities. Therefore, they are all searching for freedom and relaxation as deep into nature as possible.
Wanting to practice sports in nature and to promote a healthy and dynamic lifestyle, nine sports clubs and associations have united for a common goal: bringing together the MTB biking enthusiasts in a circuit of nine competitions that will take the contestants throughout the entire land of Moldova, a profoundly historical area, full of breathtaking views.
Ancient forests, fertile fields, grand mountains and crystal-clear rivers – these are all reasons of pride and joy for the locals of Moldova and they gave us the moral responsibility of carrying the Moldavian spirit wherever we go.
Asociația Real Sports, along with Asociația Club Sportiv MTB Roman, Asociația Sportivă Suceava pe Bicicletă, Asociația Club Sportiv Pro Mountain Sports Iași, Asociația Velopower, Asociația Club Sportiv Nord, Asociația obștească Clubul sportiv de ciclism „MOUNTAIN BIKE”, Asociația Renașterea Bicazului and Clubul Sportiv Monticond have founded this ambitious project and suggestively named it MTB Moldova Cup.
This XCM (Cross Country Marathon) competition will take its contestants on nine different routes, each one representative for the relief of the respective area. Here, the adrenaline, the competition spirit, the joy and the emotion will guarantee an unforgettable experience for those who have the courage to register themselves in the race for the title of “the best biker in Moldova”.
