The movement of Thassos, in collaboration with local cyclists, co-host this year's cycling events in Thassos. That Saturday, April 30 will be held for the third year the Road Race, race 95 th place around the perimeter of the island. On Sunday, May 1 will be held for seventh consecutive year, the International People's Struggle Mountain Bike (MTB THASSOS CUP). In addition this year will be held races for children aged 8-12 years, details to be announced shortly.
The International Mountain Bike Race People Thassos (THASSOS MOUNTAIN BIKE CUP), held for the first time in 2005 with the participation of 58 athletes from 5 countries. Year after year the race began to establish in the minds of athletes, bringing the number of participants growing steadily. So last year came to number 250 athletes from Greece, Germany, Bulgaria, Romania and Serbia.
The sporting event that has now become an institution and an appointment is given annually all who love cycling, mountain and activity in general in nature. The cycling race Thassos contribute to the development of cycling and the spread of the sport in Macedonia and Thrace.
We would also like to stress the importance of this fact and in another area, the promotion of alternative tourism in our region. Last year an estimated weekend of racing visited the island about 500 people with any positive economic factors resulting in a low tourist season. Which is more than welcome, especially in times of economic downturn. It should also not overlook the direct and indirect advertising is because guests are always happy holders of positive messages.
