No compromises. 4 days of pure mountain biking, in the last genuinely wild regions in Europe. We put together rugged trails, most of which were never explored by riders, all traversing natural parks and wild regions unique in Europe. Enjoy the all-inclusive experience, covering everything from accommodation in the Race Village, at the Olympic level resort Cheile Gradistei Fundata, diverse meal options and complete race services. Join us, between the 1st and 4th of August, in Romania’s Carpathian Mountains for a journey that will reshape your mountain biking foundations.

"It is actually a very beautiful race and very, very technical, very hard. It was very tough, but absolutely beautiful. It is proper MTB."

GUSTAV LARSSON, Olympic Champion

"I think Carpathian MTB Epic is really nice. The stages are so cool because they are so hard. But that’s how mountain bike should be like."

FRANS CLAES, UCI Marathon Series Winner 2017

"It’s really wild there, but I wanted these extreme conditions. That’s why I love mountain biking!"

CORY WALLACE, 2 x Canadian Marathon Champion

"The race was wild and rugged. The trail reminded me of Canada, just as wild. It was real mountain biking, rough trails, steep climbs and the descent off the top was amazing. This is one of the best races I’ve done. It was an amazing."

Look with your soul and listen with your heart. The Carpathians await.
