Mountain Biking 2007 is starting from October 5th in Shimla. This event has become an annual phenomenon and it continues to grow. This year, the cycle riders will have to go through tough mountain conditions for nine days covering more than 700 km. The race ends on October 13, 2007, at Manali. Prize distribution is to be held on October 14, 2007, after giving a days breather to the participants who manage to complete the race.
The event was started by a group of enthusiasts from Association for Himalayan Adventure Tourism (AHAT). The first race was held in 2005. Last year 58 riders from all across the world participated in the event. Only 33 were able to finish the race.
The event at this stage and magnitude cannot be managed without support of volunteers. Volunteers help in keeping the costs low, specially when the resources are limited. This year AHAT has come up with a volunteer programme so as to choose the right candidates amongst the many who apply.
Selected volunteers will be provided with
• Breakfast and dinner
• Race Finisher’s Dinner
• Crew T-shirt
• Crew Cap
• Transport between stages
• Reserved start place for following year’s race
If this is not enough than you also get to see beautiful Himachal , starting from Shimla and ending at Manali. The route will take you through interiors of the picturesque state.
There are limited number of volunteer places available so those of you who are interested in volunteering for the race please send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or log on to http://www.mtbhimachal.com/volunteer_programme.htm . The selected candidates will be intimated by AHAT team.
