Hero MTB Himalaya 2016 Review

  • News

Imagine ¬Čbreathtaking views, scenic campsites, amazing people with a thrill for adventure, challenging climbs, and exciting trails. This is what the Hero MTB Himalaya is made of. Started in 2005, this is an annual race that takes place in the mountainous state of Himachal Pradesh. The original route was from Shimla to Manali, covering a total distance of around 500 kilometres over a span of 8 days. However, come 2010, the route was changed to begin and end at Shimla, passing through the picturesque towns of Kullu, Shimla and Mandi districts.

This year's race saw a total of 67 participants from various parts of the world. Flagging off from Shimla, the riders covered a total distance of 650 kilometers, gaining a total elevation of 15,000m- over 8 days, to finish this herculean race at Dharamshala on the 3rd of October.

After an excitement packed, adventurous and eventful 9 days of cycling in the mighty Indian Himalayas, the final results are as follows:

Open Men Solo:

  • 1st position: Andi Seewald - 27 hrs 23 mins and 59 seconds
  • 2nd position: Cory Wallace - 27 hrs 55 mins and 15 seconds
