1st race and 1st Podium for Team CHIRU-WTB
Gengis <wbr>Khan <wbr>Day <wbr>2 <wbr>and <wbr>3
It's never too late for race report of Day 2...Yesterday was the shortest day ( 43km ) with finish at Mongolian Yurt city. With sunny weather and dryer trails, the race went at an insane pace, riding sometime at 40+ km/h on grassland single tracks, a pretty unique experience and every riders loved it!! Some more excitment were added to the race as many trails markers were knocked off by the wind or local herds. several riders group got lost on couple occasions...and very soon everybody realized that one can get lost very easily in the ocean of green hills. CHIRU-WTB riders repeated same placing 4th for Eric Felbabel within seconds of leaders and Pierre Le Magnan 5th.
Day 3: Very windy conditions in Xiwuqi today, which made the final 100km third stage on a entirely new course a challenge for every participant. "Today was hard as the leading pack blew after 15km and we were riding mostly with strong side and face winds, basically fighting on your own most of the race" said Eric Felbabel claiming 4th again today and 3rd place overall. Le Magnan confirms his 6th position today, claiming 6th overall and best ranking over the 40+ riders."very impressed with the level here, it starts full-on and keeps attacking all the time, the Mongolian National team blew everybody, and I wish them luck for the next Mongolian Bike Challenge starting in Ulan Bator end of July, I am sure hey will surprise a lot of overseas riders" Said Le Magnan
