Kulhavy and Spitz with Cape-Epic-Form?

Defending Champions Gunn-Rita Dahle-Flesjaa and Fabian Giger, as well as the Olympic Champions, Jaroslav Kulhavy and Sabine Spitz, will start the 21st Afxentia stage race in Lefkara, Cyprus, this week. With the 14.6 kilometre opening time trial from Lefkara to Skarinou, the athletes from 25 nations will begin the early season test, which ends on Sunday with the cross-country race in Mantra tou Kampiou.

Fabian Giger (Kross Racing) has already won the HC-class Afxentia three times (2013, 2014 and 2016), and is therefore somewhat the unofficial Champion of the traditional event. And he is one of the favorites this year.
