One month to go until the Cyprus Sunshine Cup

With less than one month to go until the opening round of the Cyprus Sunshine Cup, the race has attracted top riders for some sun and warm weather racing to help them find form prior to the World Cup season. Austrian Olympian Christoph Soukup (Czech Merida) and German Karl Platt and are among those who will compete for time on TV and increased prize money.

Last year, Soukup won the final race of the series. Platt will prepare for the season along with his new Team Bulls teammates Frenchman Thomas Dietsch and German Tim Böhme. Dietsch is one of the most successful marathon riders of the world and especially in the first stage he could be able to compete for the win.
