UPDATE: ASEAN MTB CUP PREPARATION

ASEAN MTB CUP COURSE INSPECTION UPDATE

 

(Start Area for XC Race)

 

Cross-Country

The planners did a test run on the XC Course a couple of days back. The objective was to show the marshals, medics, and the people involved in the operation how the flow will be during the event. It also gave the orgainzers a clearer vision of the event ground's layout. The test run was not a competitive race. 2 Elite Category riders from Cebu who are experienced riders clocked in 18min 40+sec for one lap. They expect to Elite Category riders who are experienced in international races to hit 16minutes. There were small revisions on the race route after inspection from the commissionaire. 

 

Downhill

For downhill, the fastest time was 4 min 42 sec but this is not a good estimate of the race track as there are still many features to be added. Racers should expect a good mix of rollers,  jumps, and berms to get their adrenaline pumped and the race more exciting. It is estimated that a Elite Category racer with international race experience will clock somewhere near the 3min+++ mark. One feature taken out during the first round inspection was the river gap.

 

More updates soon!
