Harlan Price Wins Sikkim Stage Race
09 April, 2009
Dodging chickens, dogs, cars and other riders through the Himalaya foothills, Price managed to claim victory in India's nine-day International Khachendzonga MTB Expedition. Due to shoddy organizational management the race ended up being more like a season of ‘Survivor’ with food deficiencies, tent shortages and poor medical services for the first four days. “Despite those problems the race ended up being a lot of fun,” Price stated. “There were two stages a day, one an uphill and the other a descent; each being anywhere between 5- and 25-kilometers long.”
