Get on your bike for Hero Thailand 2020

Chiang Rai will be the venue for Hero Thailand 2020 mountain bike competition, part of the Hero World Series.

The Hero World Series, an international epic mountain biking competition, is coming to Thailand next year. Hero Thailand is set to take place from Oct 8-11 2020, with hundreds of mountain bikers from around the world expected to take part.

The Thai event will be the last of next year's series, following the first two that will be held in February in the desert of Dubai and in June in the Dolomites of Italy, where the competition originated. The third epic race will take place in the northern province of Chiang Rai and will cover a total distance of 62km with an unconfirmed elevation gain of 1,800m. Male and female participants will share the same route.

Hero Thailand 2020 is being staged by NCC Exhibition Organizer (NEO), the company behind the International Bangkok Bike Expo and the recent Asean Bike powered by EuroBike trade show. This will not only be a good chance for local racers to test their skills and stamina against elite riders from Europe and other parts of the world, but also a fun and inspiring experience for spectators.
