We crossed the trails riding our bikes and with the aid of the Mahindra vehicles we approached the rugged slopes of the mountains and arrived to beautiful places where the race will take place. Neraida, Kleisto, Chochlia, Mavrilo,Fourna, Vracha,  Neochori were some of the intermediate villages we passed.
