Lukas Flückiger and Ralph Näf kick off the 2014 season in Cyprus

18. February 2014

The Afxentia stage race is a part of the Cyprus Sunshine Cup and will take place from 27 February until Sunday, 2 March 2014. Lukas Flückiger and Ralph Näf will make good use of the experience to test their new fourstroke FS01 in race conditions.

The race in Cyprus also serves as training for the Cape Epic which will start 3 weeks later in the Western Cape region of South Africa. Näf who has already spent a number of days in South Africa training has just completed Tankwa Trek - a 3 day stage race in Ceres - to finish off his preparations. Lukas Flückiger has also proven his good form by winning the national cyclocross championships just a month ago.

The Cyprus Sunshine Cup has become very popular in recent years and many top athletes will be at the starting line. The BMC Mountainbike Racing Team would like to extend their thanks to the organizers of the Cyprus Sunshine Cup and the Cyprus Tourism Board for their support.
