Of course, it is still too early to share the full details about this year's routes, but we can definitely say it will be the best routes ever.
We say it every year, but this year it is really true.
2nd year in the same location forces the route planners to think out of the box.
It allows us to dream big, to fulfill fantasies and to create dream routes.


We want to thank and cherish our main sponsors that are behind us, even in these difficult times.
