Hero MTB Himalaya and Bike Transalp

Hero MTB Himalaya and Bike Transalp collaborate to promote MTB Riding in Europe and Asia

In a historic partnership for mountain biking in India we are thrilled to announce the association of Hero MTB Himalaya with BikeTransalp. HASTPA and Bike Transalp will be working together to promote the sport of cycling and Mountain Biking to a larger audience in both Asia and Europe. We will present to you the best riding experience from the finest mountains of the world.

With MTB growing into one of the most exciting forms of cycling this partnership aims to direct more and more riders towards this form of riding. Both races have established themselves as some of the toughest MTB stage races in the world.

Bike Transalp is one of the oldest MTB Stage races of the world and sees top athletes from across the world. Hero MTB himalaya has slowly and steadily established India and Indian Himalayas as a world class riding destination for MTB riders. This partnership aims to make both ends meet.

“Bike Transalp was our inspiration when we started Hero MTB Himalaya in 2005. 11 years later we are thrilled to partner with them to promote the sport further in India. Cycling is rapidly increasing in India as a lifestyle activity and with exposure to world class riders and races it will definitely inspire young riders to take up mtb as a sport” – Says Mohit Sood – President HASTPA and Founder Hero MTB Himalaya
