It is an official motorcycle race co-organized by the MST and ORT clubs, sanctioned by AMOTOE with the aid of local authorities, organizations and sponsors throughout Greece. “Riv3r Enduro Crossing” constitutes a unique sports event in the field of motor-driven motorcycle, bringing together for three days in the town of Veria top riders not only from Greece but also from abroad, who will race against each other along the banks of Tripotamos river.

Hopefully this race will become a big draw of the town of Veria and ultimately, of our country.
