The successful series of races on roller skis continues in 2015! This year 8 races are planned - four more than last year. Whole series will culminate in finals at Ještěd at the end of September. This race will be again the Roller Ski Championship of the Czech Republic. Compared to last year we have changed a few rules of the series. Racers do not need to attend all the races, the points from individual parts of the series will be summed up. New is also a team competition. A character of individual races has changed as well. Some races will lengthen significantly, do not expect only the ride up the hill, flat courses are included too.
The races take place during weekend blocks - the goal is to learn more about particular regions under the motto "the whole family goes for sport" - you can get a new knowledge without another large travelling. We are going to start in Moravia in Velké Karlovice where two races realize - one short and one real lauf. Then the series continues by a weekend in Jeseníky Mtns.- there is an ascent race up to Praděd Mtn. and the following day a beautiful slope up race to large hydro power pumped storage plant Dlouhé Stráně. The third weekend we are going to spend in Orlické Mountains where race up to Šerlich is planned one day and then flatter run up to Kladské sedlo under Kralický Sněžník is on at the day number two. Another event is going to happen in Krkonoše Mountains where we are going to compete on course from Špindlerův Mlýn to Špindlerovka. The series is crowned by a grand finale when all roller ski racers go up to Ještěd Mountain (from Janův Důl) which is also the Roller Ski Championship of the Czech Republic!

The main race of a weekend is always in classic technique. Most organizers have also prepared minor races such as skating on roller skies or in-line skates with poles. The entire series is designed for professionals led by Stanislav Řezáč and as well as for complete amateurs. For beginners we have special clinics of technique on roller skis and an opportunity to test different models before purchase. Locations for the race course have been selected to ensure a great experience for the riders and for the fans and families of athletes. Anyone who manages to attend all the races gets a degree of Skiroll Master and with it a 50% discount for entry to BoBoloppet - 90-km cross-country ski race in Jizerské Mtns.
We look forward to seeing you and believe we meet in large numbers in each race!
