Strong start of the season for Stivian Gatev at Pamporovo Bike Fest 2017
Hundreds of bikers from home and away took part in the Monster Energy supported downhill race Pamporovo Bike Fest 2017, which was UCI's highest rank 1.
The representatives of one of the most dominant nations in the discipline, Great Britain, took the top two places on the podium, but there was also a reason for joy for the local fans, as third came the national champion and Monster Energy supported Stevi Gatev.
"Although I did not win, I am very pleased that top-class racers came. I made a few mistakes in the final without which I would have had a chance to climb to the 2nd position" said Gatev after the prize giving.
For the third consecutive year the festival celebrates the opening of the biking season in Pamporovo- Machi Chal resort and all the mountain lovers had the opportunity to ride for free on Saturday.
The inclusion of the race in the International Cycling Union calendar is proof of the perfect organization of the event and of the level of the race tracks in our country.
Now we look forward to the next UCI stop in Bulgaria, which will be during the Borovets Bike Cup 2017 in September. See you there!
