HONG Chanmakara stormed to victory in the second round of the 2010 Cambodian Mountain Bike Series Sunday in Kep. The local rider finished a minute ahead of the Kheng Ty, with Sieng Makara coming in third in the A class race. A total of 84 participants competed in four divisions of varying standard over the challenging course around Kep National Park, which included a “3-kilometre climb followed by a rewarding downhill section” according to event organiser Pierre-Yves Catry. “Next round is confirmed on July 25 at the Phnom Baseth track [near Phnom Penh] ,so I guess we will see many riders training there in the coming weeks,” added Catry.
