The first round of the Vietnam Victory Challenge in 2015 was a blast. With riders from Vietnam and pros from all over the world, it was a successful start for the young, but promising race, founded by Robert & Taunya Lofgran, passionate cyclists themselves. Find out everything about the VVC, taking place in March 2016 in the official PR.
The VVC mountain bike race will feature three days of racing through the challenging terrain around Dalat city. Race courses wind through coffee farms, traverse mountains, and dip into beautiful valleys that are remote, peaceful, and absolutely striking in their beauty. Racers are coming from all over Vietnam and around the world to participate in this grueling and rewarding event. Competition will be stiff with vising Canadian pro, Cory Wallace, and U.S. pro, Sarah Kaufmann, returning to defend their titles. 2016 marks the second year of the Vietnam Victory Challenge and will include as much as 150km of racing over three days, with steep climbs and fast descents, over 4,600 meters of total elevation gain.
The race is suitable for beginner to advanced racers with feed stations along the route, and a post-race lunch each day. We encourage families and friends to attend; each race venue is comfortable and convenient for spectators of all ages with plenty of shade and cheering opportunities. Registration is $215 USD and is available now on our website.
Racers and their families will love the small town feel of Da Lat. There is comfortable lodging, delicious food, and friendly hospitality. The city center comes alive each night; closed to motorized traffic the square teems with local merchants and delicious street food. For those less-adventurous there are plentiful restaurants of many different cuisines. There are local attractions such as a mountain gondola ride, forest trails and parks to be enjoyed post-race.
