From September 22 to September 24, 2017, as part of the initiative Sofia 2018 – European Capital of Sport, Extreme Fest 2017 took place in Sofia and turned the city into a huge sports and show arena. The culmination of the fest was an enticing moto show where the two-time European drift champion Alexander Yazov - the Matrix, demonstrated his skills. The best motorcyclists of Bulgaria - Nikolai Varbitsaliev, Angel Karanyotov, and Peter Gyoshev, also took part in a spectacular competition. Their talent and proficiency raised the adrenaline of the audience – in just two days over 17,000 participants and spectators passed through the Knyazheska Gradina Park and Gurko Street. Sofia once again proved that it will be a deserving and worthy European capital of sport in 2018.
