I noticed that Turkey has a really big calendar, almost all year long, of 1.2 and 2.2 races. Quite a lot of Eastern European and Asian CT teams and their riders seem to ride these races all year long.
Sadly, we (the world outside Turkey) doesn‘t really notice these races. No TV coversge, no images. That is a little bit sad, because I‘m sure many of us hardcore fans would like to get to know this Turkish racing scene.
Of course they certainly offer low prize money, and the teams and riders there won‘t earn millions. But this racing scene fascinates me. Riders like ex-Lampre Buts, Kononenko, Sayar, Reguigui, and few dozens others of them seem to have done nothing else within the last five to ten years than riding these races, all year long. So many 1.2 and 2.2 races - and, I suppose, that there also could be lots of National Elite races there which hardly anyone knows…
Who of you guys knows more about the world of Turkish 1.2, 2.2 and NE races?
