Race Review: Indian Terrain Seven Island Sportive powered by Montra

The fourth in the Champions Sportive series – The Seven Island Sportive, was held in Mumbai on the 17th of September. Despite rains and bad weather in Mumbai over the last few weeks, the event saw 154 participants register. 

The day dawned cloudy with a chance of rain. Undeterred by the weather conditions, the start point – Hotel Bawa International, was abuzz with excited participants in the wee hours of Sunday morning. The weather was cloudy, threatening to rain for the entire duration of the ride. Few riders did, in fact, face light rain towards the end of the ride. 

Both the segments were flagged off from Hotel Bawa International, near the domestic airport. The 102-km race was a circuit from the start point to a distance of 51 kms on National Highway 48, with the riders looping back to the start to complete. The race however was 92 kilometres with the riders covering a 10km cool-down zone at the end. The 50-km ride was a loop from the start point to Vasai Creek (on NH48) and back to the start.
