The 16th Moravská Třebová Amper Cup was held in the beautiful surroundings of Moravská Třebová on Saturday, 25 July 2020. The race, threatened until the last minute with closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic, featured 222 competitors (44 on the 20 km family route, 91 on the short 40 km route and 87 on the long 60 km route), which meant that attendance increased by more than 63% compared to last year!
The change in the lengths of the routes compared to previous years proved to be the right choice. The traditional family route once again offered young potential Moravská Třebová cyclists the opportunity to have a go at the race, but also the possibility to ride with their families at a leisurely pace. The most popular short route offered active competitors the opportunity to race at a fast pace, but also offered the possibility to ride along an undemanding and beautiful route at their own pace and marvel at the surroundings of Moravská Třebová. On the long route, the participants enjoyed both a competitive pace and a solid dose of kilometres, as well as fun passages full of mud and puddles due to the rainy weather over the previous days.
Our race means we also have the honour of helping those in need. As promised, we allocated CZK 50 from each entry fee to the Pokorný Endowment Fund, and specifically to little Vojtěch Vacek from Moravská Třebová, who was born with Goldenhar syndrome. The general partner of the race doubled the total amount collected. In total, over CZK 35,000 was collected, including your donations in the donation box on site. This will allow Vojtěch to undergo additional treatments to help him integrate into normal life.
The 16th Moravská Třebová Amper Cup cycling marathon is successfully behind us. We look forward to seeing you all again at the start line next year on the 17th occasion of our beautiful race. Until then, we wish you great success and, above all, good health!
