HIMALAYAN SUMMER - ISSUE 42
Himalayan Summer - after the big monsoon, in September, the Himalayas are ready for their „summer“. During our summer, it's raining too much, and so it doesn't happen much there then. In Manali, there were just two races, the Himalayan Mountain Bike Festival, and the Junior Downhill Championship. Both happened between just two weekends. Our team riders went there, and will tell you about it.
Yakru, the world's highest Enduro race was also held in Nepal, in the Manang district of the Annapurna Ranges. We take you there, so you can enjoy the landscape without losing a drop of sweat. There will be a lot of races now during the „winter“ in India and Nepal, and we will keep you informed.
Not quite Himalayan or Indian Summer was the RedBull Foxhunt in Machynlleth, where the girls attacked the muddy trail. The boys in Rostrevor, Northern Ireland, had a bit better conditions, but with 500 riders it was also very slippery. Gill and Marshy, two riders in the Foxhunt, give you an impression of how it feels to get hunted.
Chinese Summer is hot, specially in middle China, but at the Qinghai plateau, which is over 2000 meter above sea level, the weather is perfect for riding a bike. Bella Chen was there in August for a race, the TDRY International Downhill Race. She tells you how she did at her first time riding in China.
