- Bike Checks
If you haven't spotted yet mark your calendar for the biggest internetional downhill race in Asia. This event is back in BALI and will be held from 24th to 26th November 2017 in Besakih Mountainbike Park in Bali, Indonesia. After one year break the Asia Pacific Downhill Challenge 2017 is steping up the level of competition. The international mountain bike downhill race is organized by Orange sport management in cooperation with Indonesian Bicycle Federation (ISSI) to introduce the fast growing action of mountain bike sport in Indonesia.
We are working on a brand new track which is seriously build for professional riders that has 200 meters of elevation difference with technical natural obstacles and some cool manmade stuff that could make this event count as one of the most difficult and spectacular DH terrain that Indo can offer.
Downhill racing in Indonesia boomed in 2006 when Indo also held the Asian Downhill Championship which gives the discipline more exposure. The very first APDHC was in 2010, where the 3 times world champion Samuel Hill and junior world champion Troy Brosnan were attending the event in Mount Banyak in East Java. Over 200 riders from all around the world were competing in the most succesful event ever held in Asia.
Matej Charvat, one of the competitors from last APDHC and a WC racer is in Bali right now. As he is a bit into cinematography, we took the chance and asked him to do a bit of a check of our park. You may check his other videos as well for some more Indonesian riding action.
See you in November!
