Description of the race track:

The Pärnu track, alongside the Haapsalu track, is one of the flattest race tracks in the Filter series and thus is perfect for those who struggle with uphill races. On the one hand you can expect high average speeds from this track, on the other hand there will likely be strong crosswinds. Most of the track runs along smaller roads with less traffic, but riders have to be careful when leaving and entering the city. In the beginning and end of the race on Pärnu-Lihula highway there is more traffic and riders have to cross several roundabouts. The short distance race consists of only one lap while the long distance race consists of three, without turning towards the finish at the crossroads when starting the second and third lap!
