10. Marking
We strive to ensure that our routes are perfectly marked, so you can focus on racing and enjoying the ride, rather than wondering where you should go. Unfortunately, it is increasingly common that people destroy our markings (arrows, tapes) before and during the race. If you are riding longer than 500 m (alone or in a group of competitors) and do not see the route signs we use (white arrows on blue background and MTB Trophy/MTB Challenge/MTB Marathon logo) or simply you are riding alone for a longer period of time on an unmarked segment of trail, you should check if you are going in the right direction. It is best to have a bike dedicated GPS device with a GPX track of current stage. If you do not have such a device, and find yourself in an above mentioned situation, immediately turn back or wait for the other riders. Always make sure you are on the race's route and you are going in the right direction.
