Guwahati: The third edition of Assam Downhill Championship (ADC) will be held on the December 19 and 20 in Guwahati on the Monkey Temple Trail situated on the Hengrabari Hills near VIP Road.
Like the previous editions, this year too, top riders from across the country have registered to participate, however, due to COVID-19 pandemic, the number of participants has been limited to 60.
The Championship was formed by Spokehub with a mission to provide a platform for Downhill riders across India to meet for one common purpose – Gravity-defying Racing.
The inaugural edition of ADC in 2018 had around 45 riders from different parts of Northeast and Himachal Pradesh, whereas last year’s edition had over 50 riders from the Northeast and Maharashtra.
Since 2019, the organisers have been developing the Monkey Temple trail professionally under the guidance of senior national champion Gautam Taode from Maharashtra. Winners of the previous editions of the race went on to win medals at the national level as well.
Skilled riders above 14 years will be participating for the top positions in the Hard Tail and Full Suspension categories.
From this year, the race is being managed by trailnexus.in, a trail sports event platform focused on mountain biking and trail running. Spokehub Cycling, Pedal for a Change and Whacky Talky are the organisations behind the event.
