with No Comments


The Bulgarian National Mountain Bike Orienteering Championship 2016 was held on the 12th and 13th of August in the vicinity of Veliko Turnovo. The sprint distance was held in a small village called Samovodene. It is a populated area, with well-developed road network and a large selection of routes. The competition was really fast and interesting.


The long distance was held in Ksilifor, a recreation area, close to the town of Veliko Tarnovo. The racing route was challenging, testing racer’s technical skills and physical endurance. I managed to win both starts.

During the Long distance event, I had an accident. I fell and injured my chest. There was also suspected fracture of the ribs. Fortunately I just got bruised and my recovery went fast and good, as well as my preparation for the winter season.
