MTB Series heads to Kep for second event

The Smart Cambodia Mountain Bike Series freewheels it down to the scenic tracks of Kep this Sunday for its second round of pedal-powered action.

Keen cyclists have until Wednesday to register for the race at Flying Bikes 2 shop (No 131, Street 51).

Entrance fees range from $5 for local students to $15 for foreigners, while transport to the south coast from Phnom Penh will cost between $3-10 if you travel with the organisers early on Saturday morning.

Riders will need to keep their race numbers from the first event held on Silk Island on April 21, with replacement numbers priced at $1.

The women’s class, kids’ class and three age groups for male novices will compete in the morning session on Sunday, while the intermediate and elite men’s classes will vie for glory in afternoon laps of the testing course.
