About VMBM

Welcome to the Vietnam Mountain Bike Marathon – the toughest mountain bike race in Vietnam. November 4 – 6 2016

The race takes place in the mountainous region surrounding Sapa, deep in the far north west. With a backdrop of the highest peaks in Indochina, you will have the chance to test your skills on everything from smile-inducing single track and flowing descents to killer climbs. This is truly pioneering riding – you will be the first racers to take on these buffalo beaten trails through rice terraces and among ethnic minority villages.

The race consists of three days of extremely varied mountain biking across three of the most remote and beautiful areas of Sapa.

Stage one (48km with 1,350m gain) takes place in the beautiful and rarely visited Muong Hum area north of Sapa.

Stage two (68km with 1,800m gain) moves across to the Thanh Phu area to the south.

Stage three (27km with 750m gain) then caps the race with a shorter sprint stage ending in Sapa town itself.

Remember – this is the first edition and no other race has ever taken place here, so you will need to arrive with plenty of adventurous spirit!
