Distances: 1,670 km
Difficulty: Ultra Distance and Climbing for events well over 100 miles

The race starts on the 14th of August 2020 with a ‘grand départ’ from Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan. Riders will follow a 1670 kilometer fixed route that passes through three staffed control points. They will need to get a stamp in their brevet card at each, before finally heading to the finish line in Cholpon Ata, a beach resort on the north shore of lake Issyk-Kul, for a well deserved post-race beer or two. To earn a successful finish they will need to complete the course before the end of the after party on the 31st of August.

How tough it will be cannot be understated, but as Mike Hall once said, “Nothing that’s worth anything is ever easy.” This race will be a true demonstration of this sentiment.

Entries for the race are now open and will close on the 31st of December at midnight. Everything you need to know about the race can be found in the Race Manual. For more information on the race route see below or head to Komoot.
