About Nove Mesto

Nove Mesto has hosted the World Cup since 2011, it is held at the biathlon Vysočina Arena just outside of Nove Mesto. It has been voted the best World Cup track for many years mainly due to the technical course & loud fans!

The Course

This year the start & finish will be run in the opposite direction. The same well known and loved sections of, Cannondale BMX,Rock N Roll, Rock n Robe & the Shimano Expert Climb for the first time in many years will be included in the course.



For the first time the Cross Country Marathon will take place on the same weekend at the same venue, this will take place on Saturday.
