HAMINA

Trail description

Similar to the XCO track in Kotka, also this trail in Ruissalo, Hamina will truly test all your biking skills and argueably even more so than in Kotka. Elevation changes on this trail are not as radical as in Kotka, but there are many more ups and downs along the way and despite being short, they are often very steep and very technical. So you better bring some extra patience with you. Descents on the other hand are mostly fun trails with some technical sections here and there.

The trail is fairly well marked, but again, some of the sections are designed for the actual race and without the tape it's necessary to keep your head up and seek for those marks on trees. It's highly advisable to make one preparation lap before going for a speedy one.

There are no real fascilities belonging to this trail, but it's starting point is right next to the ice hockey stadium where you might use the toilet if open.
