A look back at the 16th Moravská Třebová Amper Cup cycling marathon
27.7. 2020

The 16th Moravská Třebová Amper Cup was held in the beautiful surroundings of Moravská Třebová on Saturday, 25 July 2020. The race, threatened until the last minute with closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic, featured 222 competitors (44 on the 20 km family route, 91 on the short 40 km route and 87 on the long 60 km route), which meant that attendance increased by more than 63% compared to last year!

The change in the lengths of the routes compared to previous years proved to be the right choice. The traditional family route once again offered young potential Moravská Třebová cyclists the opportunity to have a go at the race, but also the possibility to ride with their families at a leisurely pace. The most popular short route offered active competitors the opportunity to race at a fast pace, but also offered the possibility to ride along an undemanding and beautiful route at their own pace and marvel at the surroundings of Moravská Třebová. On the long route, the participants enjoyed both a competitive pace and a solid dose of kilometres, as well as fun passages full of mud and puddles due to the rainy weather over the previous days.

Our race means we also have the honour of helping those in need. As promised, we allocated CZK 50 from each entry fee to the Pokorný Endowment Fund, and specifically to little Vojtěch Vacek from Moravská Třebová, who was born with Goldenhar syndrome. The general partner of the race doubled the total amount collected. In total, over CZK 35,000 was collected, including your donations in the donation box on site. This will allow Vojtěch to undergo additional treatments to help him integrate into normal life.

The 16th Moravská Třebová Amper Cup cycling marathon is successfully behind us, but together with our ambassador, member of the preparatory team, and Czech Cyclo-cross Championships 2020 champion Emil Hekel, we are analysing the complete organization and course of the race, and diligently preparing next year’s event. We are convinced it will be even more successful than this year. We look forward to seeing you all again at the start line next year on the 17th occasion of our beautiful race. Until then, we wish you great success and, above all, good health!

Emil Hekele, Czech Cyclo-cross Champion for 2020, has become this year’s ambassador for the Moravská Třebová Cycling Marathon.

Come and test yourself in Moravská Třebová with this ageless Czech cycling legend on 25 July 2020. You can find more information on the website at www.mtbmt.cz and on the Facebook page of the race.


Amper Savings is implementing an EPC project at the indoor pool in Hustopeče
7.5. 2020

The town of Hustopeče has chosen Amper Savings as its partner for an EPC project at the town’s indoor swimming pool. Over the next 10 years, the company will provide Hustopeče with energy services worth a total of CZK 11 million and with a guaranteed result.

The main energy efficiency measures implemented include: reconstruction of the gas heat source, installation of a cogeneration unit, replacement of circulation pumps and mixing units, modernization of the existing lighting with LED technology and, last but not least, a new measurement and control system. The reliable operation of all equipment, guaranteed savings, and continuous optimization of the client’s operating costs will be ensured through active energy management.

Hustopeče is thus one of the first entities in the South Moravian Region to use the sophisticated EPC method to modernize their facilities and improve comfort for their citizens, with a guarantee of savings in operating costs.


Amper Group is donating medical supplies. It proposes simplicity and decentralisation to restart the economy.
27.3. 2020

Amper Holding is joining the private companies helping prevent the spread of the new coronavirus epidemic. It has distributed face masks and respirators worth half a million Czech crowns and will increase this aid to three million Czech crowns in the coming days. It recommends building the economic recovery of the Czech Republic on blanket tax breaks and decentralisation, including in the energy sector.

The first shipment provided by Amper Holding arrived in the Czech Republic last week. It contained protective equipment that was distributed to health care workers, social services, front-line employees, and Amper clients.

We secured respirators and face masks abroad. We have donated a significant portion of them to our clients, such as hospitals in Břeclav and Hustopeče, but also to other medical facilities. At the same time, we have been working to contribute towards the successful handling of the epidemic, mainly by digitising the operation of all equipment and technical support as much as possible, and sending employees to the field only when necessary – the operational energy management has made this possible,” says Jan Palaščák, CEO of the Amper Holding group.

Further shipments of medical supplies will be distributed to the hospital in Nové Město na Moravě, the towns of Chrudim, Choceň, Moravská Třebová, and non-profit organisations providing social services in Tábor, to name just a few.

“We can also learn from the current situation in relation to restarting the economy. Above all, it is clear that excessive centralisation and regulation are detrimental – this applies not only in healthcare but throughout the economy, including the energy sector. Decentralisation must go hand in hand with digitisation and the adaptation of strategic plans for any emergencies the 21st century might bring - health, migration, climate change, or any other black swan,” comments Jan Palaščák. “The immediate recovery after the end of the epidemic should include robust relief from taxes and levies – for closed businesses, small businesses and industrial enterprises. The state should choose simple, quick and blanket measures instead of complex, protracted and individually assessed support.”
