Description of the race course:

The keyword for the Pandivere Road Race is open landscapes. A large part of the course is surrounded by large open fields and is therefore very open to winds. However, the circuit was chosen so that larger highways are not on the track - the race runs along winding roads with little traffic, making it enjoyable for the recreational cyclists as well. This is probably the circuit with the least traffic in the Filter series. Even though the race takes place in the Pandivere Heights, there are no significant climbs on the track. Even though the course does ascend a little, it is definitely not the determining factor here. Should the weather be windy - Väike-Maarja happens to be one of the windiest places in inland Estonia -, the crosswinds will quickly split the row of riders into smaller groups. The short race covers this distance once, the long distance however does it thrice, without turning towards the finish at the crossroads when starting a new lap.
