Pois é… Já percebemos que a partir de hoje e, durante os próximos 25 dias (os que faltam para o grande acontecimento (!?)), vamos ficar a conhecer as 25 principais “estrelas” que vão participar no grande evento de Ori-BTT (a big event!) que terá lugar no nosso país, mais precisamente na zona de Montalegre… Será!?
Parabéns ao Orientovar por mais esta iniciativa, e votos para que corra tudo pelo melhor, ou seja, que ganhem os portugueses…

P.S. A organização que não se esqueça dos gelados (sorvetes)!
