Litoměřice / Terezín - Exactly 111 will start the 50th anniversary of the Course de la Paix [or in the czech short ZMJ] competitors from 19 teams from 18 countries. At the start of the introductory stage on Thursday on Litoměřice Square there will also be nine Czech representatives and future names for the "big" world cycling. Coach Tomáš Konečný will lead the six representatives in the jersey with the Czech tricolor, former elite racer. Six competitors who entered the national team are Štěpán Telecký (1), Pavel Novák (2), Milan Kadlec (3), Martin Bárta (4), Tomáš Přidal (5) and Daniel Mraz (6). Most of the participants atmosphere of ZMJ experienced already last year in which for example Milan Kadlec, son of the former excellent cyclist in Prague's Dukla, started as a European champion in scoring on the truck. In the final evaluation was in the end, also the best Czech national team member and the fourth best "cathegory freshman" when he lost less than two and half minutes in 15th place for the winning Norwegian Hagenes. Now together with five colleagues, four challenging days await on rugged roads in northern Bohemia and Germany Saxony, which is not very different from last year's profile. "We are going to the race with a clear goal, to win. It's our home race in which the boys will want to show off. Plus, we have the most balanced team we have ever had, so we will definitely want to "play the first violin". We have to create a race for that, "the national team coach Tomas Konecny does not hide the ambitions of the Czech national team.In addition, the national team will be complemented by three home fighters in mixed Czech - German team of the Euroregion, for which the organizers from the Slavoj Terezín negotiated again an exception. The team will feature Richard Kobr (100), Jan Lukeš (101), Vojtěch Církva (102). As already coach Konečný pointed out, Czech riders do not set low goals. "Štěpán Telecký with Pavel Novakem are excellent timekeepers and therefore the main adepts and leaders for me. A captain who has a feeling for the race, is Milan Kadlec. He is an excellent racer and even a black horse, he has a little limit in the time trial, however, he can easily escape and shine. As well as others like Mraz, Pridal or even the youngest Martin Bárta. Everyone can surprise. But it will be important for us to start well, because as history has shown to us, the 1st stage must not be underestimated. The winner must be in the front. We will go nicely day by day and the main thing will be after the time trial, "is aware of important moments Tomáš Konečný, who knows that the Course de la Paix Juniors can competitors catapult into the world of great cycling. An example is the two-time winner in recent years Tour de France from 2020 and 2021 Slovenian Tadej Pogačar or Belgian Remco Evenepoel, who became the youngest racer of the professional series a year after his victory at ZMJ (2018) UCI World Tour when he signed a contract with the Deceuninck-Quick-Step team.
