SPECIALS/EVENTS IN THE AEGEAN SEA
ENDURO MTB DAYS 2019 – 3 EVENTS
Don't miss the great Enduro MTB Days 2019! They are planned as a three-part event, starting with the amazing Pelion Enduro MTB Days in March, continuing with the Mt. Olympus Enduro MTB Days in July and rounded off by the Aegean Isles Enduro MTB Days in October. The motto of all three events is: Back to nature! The beautiful, mountainous world of Greece and the great MTB trails are made for it!
Pelion Enduro MTB Days 09/03-11/03/2019
The legendary Pelion Enduro MTB Days go into the next round! The three-day event will take place from 9-11 March on many newly built trails. Look forward to guided tours full of riding, fun and races that will be sure raise your adrenaline level!
An event full of surprises
The Pelion Enduro MTB Days will have a whole new character this year unlike any previous MTB race in Greece: A test tour will be held on Saturday to reveal who the fastest bikers on the field are. These results will be the deciding factor for the line-up of the race on Sunday.
On Sunday, the race will start in groups of five, with the five fastest bikers of the previous day starting first, followed by the next five fastest and so on. After the first 1,5 km riders will reach a great flowtrail which is wide enough to overtake. The race track is 12 km long and leads 95% downhill. The winner is the one who masters the course in the shortest time possible, whereby the rules of fairness must also be fully observed for the recognition of the victory.
For all those who start further back and have no ambitions for the podium, the rules are very simple: what’s more important than a good result is a safe driving technique and to have as much fun as possible in the company of like-minded friends.

Outlook on further Enduro MTB Events 2019
The Pelion MTB Enduro Days are continued in July and October with two more great events:
Olymp Enduro MTB Days in July 2019
The second event is expected to take place on Mount Olympus, the highest mountain in Greece, on 27-28 July 2019. An epic MTB adventure amongst spectacular scenery, great physical effort and nights of silence in the open air await you at this event! Follow in the footsteps of the ancient gods who, according to Greek mythology, lived right here on Mount Olympus. In July, the chance of bad weather is minimal, so it's the perfect opportunity to see the various peaks of Olympus before descending to sea level. The Olympus Enduro MTB Days will not be a race but rather an MTB experience in a sensitive ecosystem that has preserved its original character for thousands of years.
Aegean Isles Enduro MTB Days in October 2019
The third event is also a novelty in the history of Greek MTB events. From 26-28 October, the first 3-Island Race will take place on the exceptionally beautiful Aegean islands, which have benefited from the many new trails built in the region by the Aegean Trails Initiative. A chartered ferry is available for the exclusive transport of the event participants from island to island. The first station is the island Leros on 26.10., continuing on 27.10. to Kos with the last station being a race on Nisyros on 28.10. Here this unique event ends with a party on one of the most beautiful squares of the Aegean, the Plateia Elikiomenis in Mandraki, before taking the midnight ferry back to Piraeus.
