KIEV (Ukraine), 13. October 2012 – As the UEM Motocross of European Nations is taking place in the Ukraine´s capital city Kiev, riders couldn’t miss the chance to visit this beautiful metropolis. Youthstream in cooperation with the local Motorcycle Federation took them to the city centre of Kiev, one of the oldest cities of Eastern Europe located on banks of the Dnieper River.
The legend of this great city says that it was founded by St. Andrew who was fascinated by the spectacular location on the hilly shores of the Dnieper River. Kiev is a unique blend of the old and new. The modern city centre is located around Khreschatyk which is the name of the main street of Kiev and the well known Independence Square. Riders from 13 European counties enjoyed the showcase of luxury boutiques, hotels, restaurants and prestigious properties. Really cute white - blue St. Sophia´s and St. Michael´s Cathedrals were there, so no doubt that riders enjoyed it very much. In addition, magnificent team presentation before Sunday´s race was situated directly on the Independence square in the city centre. During each weekend something is happening there and MXoEN 2012 wasn´t exception as the beer festival was in Kiev in the same time. Many tourist and inhabitants welcomed motocross riders as heroes and Eddie Herd, UEM delegate, invited in his speech everyone to Pyrogovo track to be part of this historical event of Ukrainian motocross.
