Visegrad cycling race to start on Saturday
Budapest, April 21 (MTI) – The fourth V4 international cycling race will start in Budapest on Saturday with 120 competitors from the Visegrad Four countries, Austria, Spain and Ukraine, organisers said.
The race is meant to raise public awareness to the cooperation between the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia launched 25 years ago, state secretary of foreign affairs László Szabó said.
The cyclists are scheduled to start from Budapest’s Westend shopping centre at noon and cover a 176-kilometre distance to Pannonhalma, in western Hungary, on the first day. Later on, the field will cross Slovak and Polish territories and end the race in the Czech Republic.
