In this year’s event, the organizers added a new challenge called Fox Hunt. The Fox Hunt will take place on Saturday, October 12th, starting on Olympus’ peak and finishing at Agios Nikolaos. In this very special race, one of the best cyclists will begin riding a behind the rest of the participants and his objective will be to finish in front of them! But can he make it?
After the Fox Hunt challenge, the riders will be transferred to Troodos, where the organizers have arranged a party with BBQ and music.
On Sunday, October 13th, the riders will compete in four different tracks. Beginning from Olympus’ peak, they will descent towards the Troodos villages. The tracks will be announced a few days before the race. Of course they consist of the various different terrain types, fast, tricky and of course technically difficult sections.
