'Race under the Sun' offers a warm season start

Organisers of the 'Race under the Sun' a new MTB race in Cyprus, March 19, 2006 are making final preparations for what promises to be a world-class event. Thomas Frischknecht's Swisspower team has recently confirmed its participation in the event which will take place in the town of Limassol/Yermasoyia. The Swiss outfit will be sending three riders, including Frischknecht, along with Nino Schurter and Till Marx.

Organisers hope that the Race under the Sun will be a good test for elite riders before the first World Cup round in Curacao two weeks later, April 1-2. The similarity of the two climates during March will offer riders who train and race in Cyprus the chance to acclimatise to the warm conditions also present in Curacao.
