Mountain Bike: The Ascent Begins

NICOSIA, 2 June 2009 - The Mountain Bike event is set to take place on Thursday 4 June (10:00) in the pine-covered area at the ‘Mantra’ forest park in Machairas. Iceland will be absent in the men’s category of the XIII Games of the Small States of Europe whilst in the women’s category, only the national teams of Cyprus, Malta and San Marino will be taking part.

The Cypriot men’s team will be comprised of Marios Athanasiadis, Vasilis Adamou, Michalis Kitis, Georgios Fatta, Vladislavs Neroznaks and Kyriacos Skettos whilst the women’s team consists of Elina Sofocleous, Demetra Antoniou, Marina Theodorou, Lucy Avraamidou, Nicoletta Christodoulou and Jelena Petrova.

Both Cyprus and Andorra are both expected to wage the biggest battle for the gold medal whilst San Marino are also considered to be a good side. Liechtenstein, which is also considered to be a good team, follows the grooming traditions of the Swiss who are renowned in the world of Mountain Biking.

Elina Sofocleous of Cyprus and Daniela Veronesi are tipped to be favourites to win the gold medal in the women’s event.
