Borovets preparing to celebrate end of Summer Season 2012

After a hot hot summer, full of adventures and unforgettable moments, Borovets is preparing to close the summer season with three different  events, which will appeal to a wide range of mountain lovers and extreme sports fans.

Bike Park Borovets

„Final DH Challenge” – the final summer season mountain bike downhill event in Borovets will surely bring together all the best downhill bikers in the country.  The organizers promise to make sure all routes in Borovets Mountain Bike Park will be in best possible shape and condition for everyone who wants to have a go.

The second event will be taking place at the bottom of the mountain, right in front of Hotel Rila in Borovets, where over 60 jockeys representing clubs from all parts of the country will be participating in a spectacular horse show. For everyone who wants to actively take part in the event – there will also be an organized 5 hour horse trek across the beautiful Rila mountain.

The icing on the cake during this action packed day will be a "Gumball 3000" style rally, with the finish line right in front of Hotel Rila, which will also host the award winning ceremony later in the evening.

These summer season closing events are guaranteed to be extra special as they will be held on the 22nd of September – Bulgaria’s Independence Day, celebrating the proclamation of independence of Bulgaria from the Ottoman Empire in 1908 by Prince  Ferdinand in the old capital Tarnovo.
