Yak Ru - Annapurna Challenge 2016 concludes

Publised On : 18 May 2016

The 3rd installment of the 5-stage high altitude mountain biking race concluded with great success. As usual, all of the participants had to battle with high altitude sickness above the Manang. Unfortunately, some of them succumbed to the AMS and they had to abandon their race completion dream. Two of the participants had to be airlifted to Kathmandu for medical attention. The race was participated by 11 cyclist from Germany, France, China, Macau and Nepal. More than 15 international organizations from Singapore, Brazil, Nepal,  UK and the USA provided their expertise and support for the race.
