As an organizer, one has to marvel at the entries attracted
by a "Winter Cup" event in a small town of Klatovy in the
Czech Republic - Paasonen, Blomquist, Kopecky, Baumschlager, Valousek:
Then again, this is the 41st running of the event:
Three full days of reconnaissance for one and a half days of racing
with 129 stage miles (206 km) and many repeated stages. Recce is
limited to the maximum of three passes (bummer).
