Highlights

A big thank!


This ninth edition of MOC was very intense, touching, colourful and spring. The image of the final stage arrival in the heart of Matera - World Heritage, between the typical “Sassi”, will be engraved for a long time in the memory of participants with two big champions winning the 85° stage of Park World Tour International series: the Swedish Helena Jansson and the French Thierry Gueorgiou. A plaudit and a mention for the excellent work to the course setter Jaroslav Kacmarcik and to the mapper of Matera, Claes Nideborn.
