"Spectators were unbelievable again, such supportive fans are nowhere else in the world. I am proud of them," Vaněk said. „I can say that as far as fans and supporters are concerned, we are ready for the next year," he added, referring to the UCI 2016 MTB World Championship that will be taking place in Nové Město na Moravě in July next year.
Riders themselves loved the rehearsal for the World Championship too, and commented about it on social media. Their posts were very positive. Both winners of the elite categories, Jolanda Neff and Jaroslav Kulhavý, commented on it, too.
“I love this place! Nové Město you rock!” Jolanda wrote on her Twitter. Jaroslav Kulhavý commented on spectators and their support with the following words: "I sometimes feared I would lose my hearing... They were so loud, but it was just awesome to have such support."
Saturday's programme was visited approximately by 3,500 spectators. 142 journalists received accreditation in the course of the two-day-long programme.
