Dzicz Bieszczadzka VII – Cup 2010
“This is an event on quads of a cross-country character in very difficult terrain, OES, which is only 700 meters, is covered by competitors for 4 hours.” The event is considered to be the most difficult quad event in Poland. ” The competition is played three times a year in Bieszczady. The route has fragments of mud, driveways, traverses, descents, crossing the forest – it is only passable for a quad equipped with a 4 × 4 drive.
This year, the Bieszczady Wilderness Cup is held, which consists of three events.
Like every wilderness, it also assumed defeating the stages, whose route runs mainly through the channels of streams and deep Bieszczady ravines – each runner had a time limit of 20 hours to cross the route. The route is very difficult technical, strength, demanding from the rider powerful physical work with a quad. Many traverses and steep climbs, during which it was necessary to support additional equipment, blocks, ropes, winches.
– I went on a tour on Friday at 21.00. At the beginning of the first OES, I scored a very serious tip, which caused the failure of my quad. The failure turned out to be so serious that it was necessary to tow equipment for the mechanics’ garage. My partners Maciej and Jarek continued to drive without me. After almost 2 hours of stoppage in the quad service was started and I went on the Dziczy route myself, it was the only way out if I wanted to continue the ride. I had great fears about driving alone in such a difficult area in the middle of the night, the middle of the forest, where anything can happen at any moment. After defeating the first OESU myself, I caught my rhythm, driving confidence and believed that I would give him advice. I overtook the next team, I lost the current on the last stage and without the winch I reached the finish line happily, it was 16.20, so I had 19 hours and 20 minutes behind me – says the Zakopane driver who finished third in the final classification. – The first two places were taken by experienced players who race on routes across the country, won many quad events, learn from them and from the party to the event I gain more experience. In the Yamaha Poland classification, I took first place, winning all Yamaha vehicles. The result is very satisfactory for me, currently I am in 2nd place in the general classification of this year’s edition of the Dziczy season, in October the third final edition will take place.
