After what has been a challenging time for everyone, one of Chiang Mai’s leading mountain bike tour operators – Trailhead Thailand is proud to be hosting the Trailhead Enduro on the 6th and 7th November 2021 at Khao Yai Thien, Nakhon Ratchasima province which is approximately 3 hours Northeast of Bangkok.
The event is being organized by the same team who bought you the Amazing Thailand International Chiang Mai Enduro, which was part of the Asia-Pacific Continental Series of the EWS, and the same high standards will ensure a memorable time will be had by all participants.
The emphasis of the event is to relax and have fun with old friends and new, participating in a fun race format that allows beginners the opportunity to experience an enduro race for the first time whilst at the same time seasoned riders can enjoy the amazing trails that Khao Yai Thien has to offer and return to competing against fellow mountain bikers.
