April 2009 - Members of the Technical
Commission and Heads of Delegations of participating
countries in the XIII Games of the Small States of
Europe visited the National Park of Machairas, which
will host the Mountain Bike event of the Games.
The delegates were
briefed on the Mountain Bike competition and technical
aspects of the track by the President of the Cyprus
Cycling Federation, Nakis Michailides, and the Technical
Director for Cycling in the GSSE, Evangelos Diamantides.
During the visit, the participants inspected the area
where the headquarters of the competition will be set
up, in tents provided by the Army (as the location is a
natural reserve and the erecting of permanent facilities
is not allowed).
