Hurikova victorious in women's race

World ranked number one Jaroslav Kulhavy was the favourite. Everybody expected a boring race with him leading from the start, but it was not to be.

Kulhavy broke his freewheel, did not want to run the 3km to the tech zone and withdrew from the race.

Jan Skarnitzl took the advantage and rode away with Filip Eberl. Two laps to go and he tried to escape from Eberl, which he did a quite easily and went on to the finish for the first elite title in his career. On the last lap, Eberl started to fade and Milan Spesny overtook him and earned silver. Eberl took bronze.

Katerina Nash decided not to defend her title, so Tereza Hurikova and the rest of the Czech women's field had easier journey to the national champion's jersey.

Hurikova took the lead in the first lap after she passed Pavla Havlikova, the strongest starter and her biggest rival. With a few crashes on a very dry and dusty course in the downtown of Teplice, she maintained the gap and won with a margin of almost four minutes over Pavlina Sulcova. It was Hurikova's third elite title

Jan Skarnitzl's sister Jitka Skarnitzlova won the women's title in U23 category.
