Withdrawal of a competitor from the team during the event is equal to withdrawal of the team. The TEAM classification will be carried out at Classic and Adventure distances in categories:

Fourteen years ago, we offered MTB lovers a completely new quality: one race village, minimal logistics, unique natural circumstances and absolutely unique routes. Thanks to Trophy, many people have changed their point of view on this sport. We have shown many competitors from all over the world what Poland has to offer in terms of MTB. This is the formula we have been following to this day, the formula used by other organizers of similar events in Poland and abroad. It will also guide us in the long weekend of June 2023 during the seventeenth edition of the STREFA MTB TROPHY.
We attach great importance to the marking of our routes. We leave nothing to chance in this field. The route is clearly and uniformly marked from the first to the last kilometer and checked before the start of the competitors.
Both the competitor who wants to move all the time at a racing pace on uphill and downhill stretches and the loose trail rider have to feel sure that they are still on the course of our race. Not a single turn or side road will be missed in our signposting. Bad weather, a quick descent with a poorly visible single reflection, or your physical fatigue...
We take all this into account when we do the marking. In corners, behind turns or on long straights with crossroads - our signs will always confirm that you're driving well. If you have made a manoeuvre and for a long time (250-300 meters) you can't see the signs that are characteristic for our competitions, make sure you're going well.
Having a current GPX track will certainly help a lot. If you don't have one, try to get back on the track calmly in order to consult with the other athletes and make sure you're on the right route.
