Mountain Bike Racing in Tibet – Here We Come!
Posted on April 24 2016
While some of the guys will be off racing Red Hook Crit, both Jeff and Tyler will be in Tibet racing mountain bikes. That’s right, alongside longtime friends Natooke from Chengdu they will be part of an 8 person team competing in the Basong Co International Mountain Bike Race, between April 27 and May 5th.
The race itself starts in Linzhi, located in the South East of Tibet somewhere around 3,200m. It travels around the Batsom Lake and continues up and through the mountains reaching peaks of 4,300m. We’ve been told there’s lots of climbing, some pretty serious single track and a whole lot of pain. Spanning over 2 days and finishing towards Lhasa the course looks pretty magical.
Expect daily posts about the Tibet Mountain Bike Adventure – the guys head off on April 27th. Wish them luck!
