Snowbiking makes its world debut at Vitosha Winter Fest
Sofia celebrates World Snow Day 2022 with Vitosha Winter Fest, which will be held under the motto "Discover, have fun, experience." Snowbiking - the newest discipline in cycling, will make its official world debut during the seventh edition of the festival this Saturday in front of Aleko hut.
For the first time there will be a snow descent on wheels, and now it will be with the official name "Snowbiking". The competition is valid for the National Championship and will determine the national champions. As the discipline is completely new and recently approved by international structures, in practice the Vitosha competitions and the French national championship are the first in the world, organized and officially adopted in the calendar of the World Cycling Union. The downhill bike ride will be organized for the sixth time as part of the Vitosha Winter Fest, but for the first time it will be with international participation. On January 22, the show in the mountains will start at 11.30 am with the start of the square in front of Aleko hut, the track with an impressive displacement is 800 meters long with many turns, jumps and tricks, and the final is in front of the lower station of the former Romanski lift. The hosts promise a lot of emotions, action and good mood during the attractive competition.
