The Olympic Champion Jaroslav Kulhavy has chosen Cyprus as the proven destination for the upcoming season.
Jaroslav is not only training intensively, but also racing. He is taking part in the traditional Sunshine Cup.
“I have been participating in the races in Cyprus for many years. They are very well organized, on the attractive and interesting routes in the wonderful nature of Cyprus with excellent top racers of the world peloton”, says Jaroslav.
This year´s Jara´s preparation is aimed at achieving the best results in the Mountain Bikes World Cup, in the XCO World Championship and also in the World Championship in the Marathon. That´s the title Jaroslav has been still missing in his successful collection of achievements.
For training Jara uses the terrains around Limassol.
“There are fantastic terrains for cycling and training. There are roads of high quality with low traffic and broken profiles, long hills and plains. The natural ways are very varied and suitable for training on the mountain bikes, including long technical parts and interesting downhills”, specifies the Olympic winner.
This year preparation is amplified by another event. Jaroslav is participating in the famous Cape Epic race, together with Christopher Sauser in honour of the tragically deceased team colleague and friend Burry Stander.
I hope that high quality training in Cyprus will help me to pass the Cape Epic with the best result. We are riding for Burry, this race is a very personal event for me and for the whole Specialized Racing team“.
