We have been following the Asia Pacific Downhill Challenge (APDHC) over the years now and each year it continues to get more and more popular. This year names like McDonald, Thirion, Masters and Davis were all on the island battling it out. Even though it is their off season the riders love racing the event, the track is tough yet fun but more importantly the fans go wild! The location is amazing (who wouldn’t want to be riding their bike on a tropical island) and the hosts always go all out to ensure a good time is had.
For the riders who came in from abroad the humidity was a big challenge, the heat sapping energy at a rate of knots! We have a selction of pictures from the event for you to enjoy:
The win was taken by reigning champion Remi Thirion, Thibaut Ruffin was second making it a Commencal 1-2,A�Wyn Masters claimed third, fourth was Hajime ImotoA�and young Jackson Davis was 5th.A�Brook MacDonald crashed out of contention.
Next year promises to be even bigger and better!
