Dear friends of mountain bike orienteering,
On behalf of the organizing committee, I am honored to invite you to the Czech Republic for the World Championship in MTBO 2023. The races will take place around the cities of Jičín, Nová Paka, Mostek, Ostružno, Sobotka and Seletice. The center of the championship will be the beautiful city of Jicin, which is the gateway to the area called Bohemian Paradise.
The combination of the cyclist's maximum physical performance with navigation in unfamiliar terrain is what makes our sport attractive to both racers and spectators.
I sincerely believe that in addition to sports experiences, you will also have unforgettable experiences from the hospitality and beauty of not only the Bohemian Paradise. That is why I would like to invite you to the official training camp, which will take place as part of MTBO 5 days in Pilsen.
We are looking forward to and believe me that we are doing our best to make the 21st World Orienteering Championships unique.
I wish all the competitors good luck and all the spectators a great experience.
Chairman of the organizing committee
