The first competition of the holiday weekend began:

in the Birch Grove on the Civil Village. Pupils of cycling sections from all over the Moscow region gathered in Sergiev Posad to show their skills in mountain biking.

In honor of the Defender of the Fatherland Day, the Cycling Federation of the Moscow Region held an open winter championship and a mountain biking championship in the cross-country discipline, which are cross-country mountain bike races.

Despite the 15-degree frost, 141 athletes from 12 cities and 5 teams came to fight.

“In fact, there were fewer athletes than previously announced,” explains Alexander Shcherbakov, president of the cycling federation. “Because until this morning we didn’t know if there would be races.”

The fate of the competition depended on the arrival of the Patriarch. Since the site where his helicopter lands is located next to the sports track, His Holiness guards warned the organizers about restrictions on the passage of cars and special security measures that make it impossible to hold the competition, said Alexander Shcherbakov. The patriarch did not arrive that day.
