The Ski Classics Challengers event in the Czech Republic, Energamo Lipnolopet, is a 55km long-distance roller ski race with 850 meters of total climbing.
The race starts with a flat course around the Lipno reservoir, and after 14km, there will be a Sprint checkpoint (prize money). Then comes the first aid station and a long climb to Pasečná, where there is a Climb Checkpoint (prize money) and other refreshment station on kilometer 26.
Between kilometers 20 and 40, the athletes will roller ski the most beautiful part of the route, along the border with Austria, and have a beautiful view of the Alps, passing beaver dams and the historic Schwarzenberg canal for transporting wood.
Then, return to Lake Lipno, and after passing the start area again, there is a final refreshment station and a final climb with a 14% gradient in short sections.
