National coach, Anestis Kourbetis announced the formation of the Team that will represent Cyprus at the 2023 ΔΕΗ Tour of Hellas. The main criterion of selection was the readiness of the athletes that Kourbetis believes would meet the high demands of a challenging race.
These athletes are Andreas Miltiadis, Andreas Kasapis, George Kouzis, Alexandros Matsangos, Konstantinos Pavlidis, and Christos Filokyprou. The team will be supported by staff member, Stavros Georgiou.
They have participated in two international races on Greek soil, in the island of Rhodes. At the Rhodes Grand Prix (1.2), Andreas Miltiadis ranked 20th after a mass sprint finish, while Alexandros Agrotis was 36th.

2022 ΔΕΗ Tour of Hellas Review
The Cyprus National Team’s presence at last year's event was excellent. Andreas Miltiadis ranked 9th after a fantastic team effort, while Konstantinos Pavlidis found himself in 16th place amongst U23 riders.
Miltiadis registered the best placing in a single stage as well, finishing 9th in the final sprint in Karditsa. The Cypriot champion remained with the peloton in all five days of action, while he was part of Stage 1 breakaway group which started in Heraklion and finished in Chania.
