Join us for a lifetime Mountainbike experience at Troodos Mountainous range in the heart of Cyprus.

The race will be held on Sunday, June 17th 2018.

Are you new in Mountainbiking? You think that Troodos is hard for you? Well we have a slightly different opinion!

We have prepared the all-round entry level course for people who want to feel the "Troodos Mountain Bike experience" for the first time!

Short distance

The route is 13 Km long, with a total ascent of 300 m which we believe is as minimum possible and includes main mountain bike features as forest roads, single trails, tarmac sections, ascending and descending sections but most important is the great scenery of the highest mountain in Cyprus.

Difficulty level 6/10

Middle Distance

This course starts from Troodos Squares and through forest roads around the "Persefoni trail" heads towards the entrance of Kalidonia falls. From there you enter the asphalt road direction to Platres and after 1,1km you enter a forest road on your right hand side.From there you follow the road to Prodromos dam. Once you reach the dam you take the asphalt road uphill to Troodos where is the Finish Line. Near Prodromos Dam there will be a refreshment station where you can refuel on water and some fruits.

Difficulty level 6/10

Long Distance

The riders for the long distance will start the same direction as the Middle distance, after few kilometers thought they will follow another direction mainly down towards Platres. From there they will take an uphill dirt road which will take you to the Platres - Troodos asphalt road. From there they follow the same direction as the Middle distance: they enter the asphalt road direction to Platres and after a few hundred meters they enter a forest road on their right hand side. From there they follow the road to Prodromos dam. Once they reach the dam they take the asphalt road uphill to Troodos where is the Finish Line. Near Prodromos Dam there will be a refreshment station where they can refuel on water and some fruits.

Difficulty level 8/10
