The last sixth stage will be very attractive and will include riding through the town with various obstacles finishing right in the city center. 

The participants in the race will have several hours to compete during the day and cover a distance of more than 20 km, exhausting riding through a combination of various bike park trails, technical singetracks and natural trails with a total descending elevation of 2100 m!

Elevation 999 will be the first Enduro race in Pamporovo and the region and the organizers announce that it is already planned to happen next year too, as well as they have applied at the International cycling Union ( UCI) to include the race in their calendar and it will give riders points for the world rank list. 

The competition will be held in two days; Saturday being the day for training and the seeding run at the end of the day and Sunday will be the race.
