Silk Road Mountain Race

Kyrgyzstan

The first edition of most bikepacking races usually involve a makeshift start and a field of riders selected from the organiser’s closest friends. Not the Silk Road Mountain Race, which has assembled a lineup of veterans and rookies and convinced them to a race a fixed 1,700km route through Kyrgyzstan’s Tien Shan mountains -- with a wince-inducing 26,000m of climbing thrown in for good measure, too. With only three manned checkpoints, unfamiliar terrain, and scant resources, the race is set to make essential dotwatching.
