It is true!!! Bike Odyssey is now officially part of the calendar of races of the World Cycling Federation. The biggest and most difficult Mountain Bike race in Greece, and one of the toughest races in the world, is now an official UCI race as a natural result of its uniqueness, the experience that only it can offer and its popularity in cycling and sporting community around the world. By being part of the official UCI calendar, Bike Odyssey achieved something even more important: It did not just become more prestigious, but, as of now, it is the race with the most stages and hence the biggest Mountain Bike race in the world, as there is no other nine - days cycling event in its category, making at the same time the country itself a bigger name on the world sports map. This way the Men's Elite who will take part in the race will participate not only in a most unique event but in the biggest MTB race in the world, while the participants of the OPEN categories will have the opportunity to compete against athletes of the highest level, gaining an even greater experience!! The event is now getting even more interesting, with the standards of the event raising, with the race winning a unique position in the cycling community and the preparations for June 2019 being already in progress!
