20080412-bikeasia100-poster


Here’s your starter to your offroad season, the century race you’ve been waiting for!

In celebration of the first Bicycle and Motorcycle Show in South East Asia, “Bike Asia 2008“, you get your chance to race SOLO or in a TEAM RELAY against an international field of top enduro riders.

Leading the pack is Endurance Solo Specialist Tinker Juarez, reigning US 24hr Champion, 2-time Olympian and a Mountainbiker Hall of Famer. Regional top riders
like Tawatchai Masae from Thailand (the reigning SEA Games Champion) and Surban Nino from the Philippines (runner-up for SEA Games 2007) will be renewng their battle in our very own playground with national teams from Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore giving them a run for their money!

Furthermore, you get to race on yet another brand new section of the Tampines Mountain Bike Park, so nobody again gets to say the Tampines XC trail is flat!
