MTB Shimla MTB Himalaya

Hero MTB Himalaya Shimla Edition, more popularly known as MTB Shimla is a 2 day MTB XC race that is held every year in the month of April.The host City, as suggested by the name is, Shimla. The race takes you through some of the most pristine parts of the Shivalik Mountains also known as the lesser Himalayas or the foothills of the Himalayas. The race is set in a background that calls out to an adventure lover, a mountain biker, a nature lover, and asks them to get embodied in the serene Himalayas. Travelling through Wildlife Sanctuaries, Himalayan countryside, streams and rivulets, you experience, everything pure, that the Himalayas have to offer. You meet the most amazing people, you stay in the most beautiful locations and you ride the best terrain in India. Pedal your way through gut wrenching uphills, Speedy downhills, village back roads, beautiful meadows, thick vegetation, jeep tracks and savor real mountain biking as you travel around 130 kilometres in 2 days.

In 2015 the race saw domination from the young and local riders of Shimla and Hero Action Team. Devender Thakur managed to win the race followed by Madaan Sandeep and Shiven. However it was the young brigade of Akshit, Gaurish, Rohan, Sanchit, Sushant who took everyone by surprise. Will this year be the same or the riders from other parts of India pose a greater threat? The 5th edition will be a race to remember !
