Course de la Paix Juniors
Last weekend, the junior edition of the International Peace Tour took place in the Czech Republic. Yikes? How so? But: The Junior Peace Tour was already started in 1965 for the first time and is still considered one of the most prestigious stage races for juniors. And even today's elite riders, such as Remco Evenepoel, have been able to win this road cycling race.
In total, the race, classified as a UCI race, ran over 4 stages with 388.7 kilometers of racing distance.
And Saxony was also part of the route. The 3rd stage led from Teplice via Zinnwald, Osek and Deutscheinsiedel to Olbernhau. Of course, a delegation of the European Peace Ride(european_peace_ride_cz) was also on the way. Well, and our colleague Lenka Peters was able to cheer the juniors on some well-known parts of the EPR 2022 track. Also cheering was Sven Krahnert, head of the traffic police inspection PD Chemnitz. Incidentally, he is planning a cross-border project with the Czech and Polish police officers on the basis of the European Peace Ride. Sport connects!
