Racing at Amathous in 2015. Hungarian champion Barbara Benko will be among the favourites again
For the 2nd round of the Cyprus Sunshine Cup 2017 the cross country specialists on Sunday meet between the ancient ruins of Amathous. For the the seventh time a race will be held there and its Ukrainian Yana Belomoina and French Jordan Sarrou, who are called the favourites for the top spot on the podium.
The Afxentia Stage Race has successfully completed its 21st edition. Mountain bikers from twenty-five different nations enjoyed four days in Cyprus; four sunny days on great trails in impressive landscapes and a friendly atmosphere. The Afxentia is certainly worth racing, and not just for professionals.
Czech star Jaroslav Kulhavy took his third overall victory at the Afxentia Stage Race in Cyprus. A second place finish behind the Frenchman, Jordan Sarrou, on the final stage at Mantra tou Kampiou was enough for the London Olympic Champion to keep yellow.
In the women’s competition, the Belgian Champion, Githa Michiels, defeated Sabine Spitz by only three seconds in the overall, while Gunn-Rita Dahle-Flesjaa took the final stage.
