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.
