I forgot to sum things up for Plzen and Nommay, so now I add both.
– Getting there: Plzen is situated around 50 miles southwest from Prague and is easily accessible by train or car. 4 points
– Sights&City: Plzen is a quite nice city and probably it’s most famous of the beer brand Pilsener Urquell. The factory has a museum, a gift shop and a decent restaurant, that offers a wide range of traditional Czech food. 4 points
– Getting there: The course was very close to the town center and it was easy to get there. 5 points
– Layout & getting around: It rained quite a lot before the race, however, it didn’t ruin the course too much and it remained rideable for the most part. The layout was great and offered many good vantage points. 5 points
– Skill level: It was rather a fast than a technical course, probably the least challenging (in terms of technical skills, of course) cyclo-cross course I’ve seen so far. 3 points
3. Press services
– Distance from course: it took a good 5 minutes to get from the finish line to the press center, partly because the press center was situated in the building of a nursery school and we had to walk through many corridors to get to the actual press room. 3 points
– Internet – excellent internet connection. 5 points
– Handouts – As there was only one race, it wasn’t to hard to present the result handouts as soon as the race finished. 5 points
– Staff – extremely helpful, in every aspect. When approached them to help me to get to the top of one of the neighboring buildings, they helped me out without hesitation. 5 points
– Catering – Some crackers and water, not too impressive. 2 points
Overall score: 41/50 points – well done!
