Did you know?

Pühajärv means “the Holy Lake”. And Otepää (translates to“bear’s head”) after the shape of the castle hill - which reminds you of a bear’s head. It’s also where in 1224, Bishop Hermann started building the first known brick castle in Estonia, The Stone Fort.

Tere!

The Estonian “Hello” is an abbreviation of “Teretulnud” which means “Welcome”. Tere at TriStar111 and TriStar11.1 Estonia in Otepää! Thank you for choosing this Race!

The start list for the Estonia race is super impressive. I think the word is out now on the format and the style and you can see by the professionals who have come here, that the über bikers see this format as something that is very interesting.
