Sunshine Cup 2014 - Afxentia

Rider Cat Result
David Fletcher Elite 27th

David Fletcher Keeping up our participation at the Sunshine Cup, David Fletcher made the trip for the new format stage race on the sunny island of Cyprus. The team has been travelling to the island for 8 years now and was happy to once again take part in this “mini world cup” race!

A good opening Time Trial on day one gave Dave the springboard he was looking for with a nice grid position for stage two. Riders came from all over the world to compete in the 4-day race including many of the world’s top 10!

This was Dave’s first Mountain Bike race of the season and that showed on day two as he dropped back down the field slightly but made good progress on days three and four to finish first Brit in 27th position. Although not quite the result that Dave was looking for this was always going to be a training routine and a good chance for some hard racing in his preparations for the first British National in March.

The team would like to thank Mike and his team at the Sunshine Cup for another great race and a warm welcome as always on this beautiful island.
