Stages

 

The Wild West

Just after the start, the route is entering the State of the Cowboys. This fast part is leading to Anton, where it is normal to see a jeep, followed by a horse on a lead. The village has a well developed cowboy’s infrastructure and all the owners of the horses, which you will see till the end of the race, are from here.

Dalbochitsa

Very short, but interesting segment of the route, is comming after Anton village – the forest around the gully of Dalbochitsa river. As the name of the river means Deep, you will have to cross it. Just before leaving the forest, if you look more carefully, you could see a secret military object. But don’t go there, time is passing.

Highlands

The Hill Golyama Glame Just after the start, the route is entering the State of the Cowboys. This fast part is leading to Anton, where it is normal to see a jeep, followed by a horse on a lead. The village has a well developed cowboy’s infrastructure and all the owners of the horses, which you will see till the end of the race, are from here.

For a desert for this part, there is a wild passing through the railway, secured by a traffic policeman.

Side hills

We’re off to Dushantsi village on the picturesque hills over the Dushantsi dam. Beautiful dirt roads winding down and if you look left you’ll see the dam itself.

Doushantsi

Dusha means soul in Bulgarian and Doushantsi is a nice village with a couple of pubs and a library. The locals have a lot to tell about the area, but we suggest you rush to the checkpoint and go south.

 

Topolnitsa River

The area has a serious visious hills, but we chose the easy route on the topolnica river valley. The route turns to sand, but just a bit for accent.

Bottom of the dam

For this part of the race we had to wait for the dam waters to withdraw. After going down, there’s the first serious climb of the race, south to the Pirdop village with stunning rewarding views of the Balkans afterwards.
