This year's mountain bike race season was opened in the second week-end of May by the event called “The First Escape”. The first edition in 2009 attracted 600 participants, above expectations. The second edition, on Europe’s Day, collected an impressive number of about 1.300 participants at the start, everybody with a strong will to finish the race of 57 km between the Police Academy through the Baneasa Forest and the Astoria Complex in Snagov. There are only few such sports events near Bucharest and they are new, as most of them happen in the hills and mountains areas. 2010 was the second summer season when all weekends were covered with at least one such of event.
