Ciao,

PS. Mods, I could not decide the correct forum as MTBs are not motorised vehicles. Posted here due to the sports theme. You may shift this post to a suitable forum.

WOW > I really didnt know that pro-mountainbiking existed in India. Have seen quite a few people doing the Spiti loop on cycle though.

Far out, I rode a motorbike through Spiti and thought it was tough. I’d die on a pushy, forget the distance and track gradient & terrain. At that altitude I get breathless walking to the bathroom.
