We are excited to be once again hosting the International Chiang Mai Enduro (ICE) in 2019, and especially proud and honored to be chosen as a stage for the Asia-Pacific Continental Series of the Enduro World Series – the first an event of this magnitude has been held in Thailand.
The event is set to be bigger and better than ever before with racers from all over the world descending to the ‘Rose of the North’ to experience the warmth and hospitality of the locals and some of the finest trails in Asia located in Doi Suthep Pui National Park.
Riders can expect a wide variety of trails, from fast and flowy to steep and rocky, at elevations ranging from 300m (1000 ft) to 1400m (4500 ft) through a mix of evergreen forest to deciduous forest. Typical temperatures can range from 10 degrees C (50 Fahrenheit) at higher altitudes to 25 degrees C (77 Fahrenheit) at lower altitudes.
Chiang Mai is a vibrant city and one of the most popular tourist destinations in Asia. The city was capital of the Lanna Kingdom until 1558 and with it’s rich culture and heritage there are, as expected plenty of sights and attractions to keep riders occupied between riding. Chiang Mai is also renowned for its cuisine, whether it be traditional Northern cuisine or international fare, there is something for everybody.
A range of race packages will be available to ensure a warm welcome to all participants, including a VIP package, which includes comfortable and convenient accommodation, uplift service and airport transfers to ensure the experience is as hassle free as possible. A post-race 2 day mountain bike tour of the region will also be optional to allow visitors to experience more of the incredible riding Chiang Mai has to offer.
The International Chiang Mai Enduro is presented by Trailhead Thailand, a leading tour company offering the best mountain biking in Chiang Mai. We look forward to welcoming you to Chiang Mai and the International Chiang Mai Enduro!
