On 30 September, the Grand Prix Ostrava C2 UCI cyclo-cross class competition was held in Dolní Vítkovice, Ostrava, while a day later the venue hosted the first round of the European CX Cup.
In the event, approximately 350 cyclists of different age groups took part, among them Daniel Jitko and Gaspar Vizi (both from the DSI Cycling Team) representing the Hungarian colors for the teenage boys, while for the juniors Zsombor Takács (Superior Racing Team), Barnabas Vas (Cube -Csömör) and the Zsembery Boldizsár (Superior Racing Team) trio.
The cyclists had a 3.1-kilometre track that ran through an abandoned factory area, with a set of steep stairs, and a sand section, but the track also had asphalt and cobblestone sections.
On the first day of competition, Daniel Jitko started in the U15 boys competition and placed 27th at the end of the three-round competition (+6:05).
The U17 team has already completed four rounds with Hungarian success, with Gaspar Vese victorious, finishing almost twenty seconds ahead of his Slovak rivals.
The rookies completed five laps, and the race was won by Zsombor Takács (30 UCI points), more than half a minute ahead of the Czech Patrik Lienert (Rexonix Kovo Praha), while Barnabas Vass (15 UCI points) took third place – Zsembiri Boldizar (+2: 32) He became the fifteenth.
The following day, only the U17, U19, U23 and Masters age groups competed in the European Cup cyclo-cross competition.
The distances did not change, as the teenagers covered four laps and the youth five laps. In the first race, Gáspár Vizi once again put in a great performance, finishing in a respectable 10th place, just one minute behind the winner, while Dániel Gyetkó finished 26th (+2:14).
In the junior category, Zsombor Takács repeated his victory of the previous day, but this time he was able to celebrate a double Hungarian success, as Barnabas Fass came in second place. Boldizsár Zsembery crossed the finish line in 24th place (3:06). The two podium places were worth at least fifty world ranking points for the men and the Hungarian nation.
It is no coincidence that the Hungarian youth perform very well in the current world rankings: Barnabas Fas is in sixth place with 65 points, and Szombor Takács is in eighth place with 60 points.
