Mountain biker Jaroslav Kulhavy dominated a cold, snowy round of the TOI TOI cup in Mnichovo Hradiste, putting half a minute into second placed Vladimir Kyzivat to take the win.

The cross country world championships runner-up overtook Michael Boros after the first lap and then never left the lead of the race on a technical course that caused problems for many riders.

Jan Nesvadba came third ahead of Boros, while junior world champion Tomas Paprstka came in fifth.

Coming in seventh, David Kasek holds the series lead with one round to go.
