Gengis khan MTB day 1 Gengis <wbr>khan <wbr>MTB <wbr>day <wbr>1

First race for the newly formed Team CHIRU-WTB in Xiwuqi, Inner mongolia, CHINA.

Located in northern part of Inner-Mongolia at 1,000m elevation, the famous Mongolian grassland city will be again the host of the 3 days Gengis Khan MTB race ( 3 stages, 200km ).
With 63 km on day 1 and despite promising blue skies and sunshine in the hours leading up to the start of the 2012 Genghis Khan MTB Adventure, the participants got drenched in rain as soon as the opening ceremony ended and the gunshot was fired. A heavy downpour turned the first 63km long stage into a true epic race, won in a four-man sprint by Mongolian rider Altanzul Altansuckh.

Organizer Race Report:
Five riders dominated the race today including CHIRU-WTB rider Eric Felbabel. Feng Kuan Jie and Wang Lei, the men to beat here in Xiwuqi, wasted no time and set a blistering pace on the first climb to split the field open right away. . Meanwhile, other riders slid away in the threacherous and now muddy trails. Even the leading car and the media car spun around or got stuck in a mudpool at some stage!
As the rainshower passed, Tuguldur Tuulkhangai from Ulanbator looked very strong and kept up with Wang Lei and Feng Kuan Jie all the way, often even setting the pace. The three of them looked like they were going to decide the outcome of the stage, but at km 40 they were joined again by Altanzul Altansukh and a bit later by Frenchman Erich Felbabel(Team WTB-Chiru), who rode a smart race and kept the leaders within range. With 10km to go, disaster struck for Tuulkhangai as his chain came off in a bad way, which ruined his chances for success today. Meanwhile, the Triace-duo accelerated the pace........
