The first day of the ninth Caucasian Challenge saw all five teams traverse through the northern coast of Turkey on their way to Georgia. Things went relatively smooth, apartment from the press team’s unfortunate run in with a landslide inside a small hill-top village that forced them to find an alternate route. The group’s first night was spent relaxing at Sinop Beach, an ancient port city in the center of the Black Sea’s Southern coast.
