International Mountainbike Cycling Race – Cyprus Sunshine Cup 2018


The most significant international cycling race organized in Cyprus, which attracts World renowned cyclists every year, is right at your doorstep! It’s the perfect opportunity for all cycling enthusiasts to be part of the organization process and live the experience firsthand!

In just under a month’s time, racers will flock to the Mediterranean island of Cyprus for the 2018 edition of the Cyprus Sunshine Cup. The event consists of two rounds with a 4 day Afxentia stage race (February 22-25) taking place a week before a single day cross country race in Amathous (March 3rd). The Cyprus Sunshine Cup first took place in 1997 - and has been organized for more than 20 years in a row- and has become a major early season fixture on the UCI calendar with top athletes looking to secure valuable points to help improve their World Cup gridding whilst also testing their legs following the long winter months of training. For 2018, Cyprus will be their first stop before the first UCI MTB World Cup in South Africa.

Preparations for the races are in full swing and Cyprus is almost ready to receive once more the greatest names of the international scene in the field of Mountainbiking. Top riders already registered for the 2018 edition of the Cyprus Sunshine Cup include the Olympic gold medalist in London 2012 Jaroslav Kulhavy from Czech Republic, Olympic gold medalist and multiple times World Champion Gunn-Rita Dahle Flesjaa, and many other world-renowned riders, international and national teams in the field of mountainbiking.

If you like the outdoors, nature, sports or if you have any expertise that can help us deliver a well-organized and safe event, we invite your support. No special cycling knowledge, proficiency or preview experience is required.

All volunteers will receive commemorative gifts and goodie bags as well as participation certificates.
