Babadag mountain above Oludeniz becomes more than a jumping off point for paragliders this Sunday when it will host more than 60 cyclists for a mountain bike climb challenge.

The riders, who represent 14 different cycling teams, will take part in the Babadag Hill Climb Challenge to see who can get up to the top of the 2,000 metre mountain in the shortest time.

The lung and leg bursting event is part of the 2010 calendar of mountain bike events staged by the Turkish Cycling Federation.
