Introductory Word of the Director of the Race

I would like to welcome you to the race of the “May stages” for junior cycling. I am glad I can inform you that we managed to secure the traditional format of the Junior Peace Race this year again – during a four May days the best junior cyclist of the world will be rushing through Ústecký region and German Saxony. The organization of this event, which is part of the Nation’s Cup since 1995, gets increasingly more challenging every year. Indeed, this year there are only six multi stage races included in the UCI Men Junior Nation’s Cup – the most prestigious world junior competition. Therefore I am really proud of the team of people and partners who help us with the organization. Only thanks to these sometimes seemingly invisible helpers we menage to keep the high prestige and level of the Junior Peace Race all these years, but also to constantly work on further improvements. The necessity for continuous improvement is driven by the need to match the increasing quality of the peloton. This year again we can be certain, that among the more than hundred competitors, will be those who will collect useful experiences to be turned into titles and medals on the Europe or the world championships or the professional stages.

Greetings from the mayor of Altenberg

Dear athletes, dear coaches and mentors, dear friends of cycling and jury members, very honored guests, in the name of the inhabitants of the health resort and sports town of Altenberg, I would like to welcome you in the stage finish town of Zinnwald-Georgenfeld on the crest of the Ore Mountains for the 48th Junior Peace Race on the 11.05.2019. In recent decades, Altenberg has become known worldwide as a venue for national and international events. Above all, during the winter months, international competitions take place every year in the Biathlonarena and on the luge and bobsleigh track. Next year we will be the organizers of the World Junior Championships on sledging and we are particularly pleased that a World Championship in Bob and Skeleton will be held in Altenberg again in 2020. But even in the summer sporting events such as the Mad East Challenge, the Kohlhau Moutaincup or the Kohlhau Team Marathon have been held in Altenberg for several years. Now the youth measures their forces in cycling in the Altenberg district of Zinnwald-Georgenfeld, the cradle of biathlon sports in Germany. We are particularly pleased that during this event, a cross-border competition between the friendly citizens of the Czech Republic and Germany, we will be able to welcome the young matadors of the roads at this stage. It is a very special concern of the border towns, and we are therefore very happy that Cycling Club Slavoj Terezin has selected the town of Altenberg / OT Zinnwald-Georgenfeld as a finish town for the stage from Teplice to Zinnwald-Georgenfeld. I would like to thank sincerely our Czech friends for this trust and I can assure you that we will do our best to make the hosts and hosts a good host, so that the 48th Junior Peace Race will also be a success for the organizers Course all participants will. I especially wish the young athletes the necessary strength to climb the "Erzgebirgskamm" successfully and I would be delighted, if they remained true to cycling. With sporting greetings and a cordial "happiness on", sincerely yours,

     Thomas Kirsten

     Mayor and patron
