А в последните години заедно с него се провежда и шосейна обиколка на острова. Датите, както обикновено, са в края на април и началото на май, а подробностите можете да прочетете в следващите редове – на английски език, както сме ги получили, тъй като се предполага, че трябва да го владеете поне донякъде, за да можете да се запишете и да участвате безпроблемно.
