Transport to Start at Pezinská Baba is due to restrictions for big buses quite complicated and costly. Every year we do a lot to get you comfortably to the start, without having to move you halfway to smaller buses. Not everyone needs transport to the start, therefore this transport is optional and charged. 
Transport will be provided by bus from Mlynské Nivy directly to Pezinská Baba. Order your ticket in registration form. Despite it is charged, the transport is for PARTICIPANTS ONLY.

Departure times:
Mlynské Nivy, platform nr.
 10 and 11 from 8:00 (Central bus station at Mlynské nivy)
All buses leave at 8:00! Regardless of their number, the last bus also leaves at 8:00 and will also stop at the following stops:
Račianske mýto 8:05 (bus stop at Račianska street direction to Rača, stop of bus nr. 59)
Pekná cesta, Rača 8:10 (bus stop at Račianska street, at car dealership, stop of bus nr. 59)
Svätý Jur 8:25 (bus stop at Krajinská st.)
Pezinok Radničné nám. 8:35 (bus stop)

Buses will be marked with Salomon Dragon trails.

Transport from the race pick-up and finish at Kamzík is provided by a bus line nr. 144 that will run on race day from 6:30.
This is not the connection that runs to the Main bus station, from where buses leave for Pezinská Baba! If you decide to pick up your race pack on Sunday morning at Kamzík, this connection will take you from Kamzík only to the nearest trolleybus stop.

Transport of luggage from start at Pezinská Baba to finish at Kamzík is provided. Mark your bags with ID band with your race nr. You will receive it at the luggage pick up.
