when i went to the Mongolia Bike Challenge for the first time back in 2013, i remember sitting there in the hotel dining room at the hotel we were starting from in Ulan Bataar, as the staff got on stage and introduced themselves, and thinking ‘this would really be something, to be a part of this.’

with MBC founder Wiilly Mulonia, and Genghis Khan


one year on, back for my second year (partnered with the event as the provider of coaching services for the participants), race founder and director Willy Mulonia was kind enough to offer me the job of Communications Manager, which i naturally accepted, chuffed to become a member of staff for what is truly a brilliant race.

day 7-5705
me on the right, taking 3rd on the final stage 2014, and first in the Masters. no money changed hands for the win, i swear. though a beer may have been bought later that eve…

if you’re thinking of doing this one, but not quite sure, all i can say is that you will never regret it. fair weather or foul, it is an experience that stays with you forever.

to register, please go to the official website and check out our brand spanking new design, where you can register, check out the gallery and some amazing images, and also read about my coaching services for the event.


you can read about my experiences at the race here, here on VeloNews, and if you’re not squeamish, i’ll be reposting the full Director’s Cut which includes a frisky customs official, complete bowel failure and a mugging, very soon.

in the meantime, enjoy some amazing images from 2013 and 2014 at the Mongolia Bike Challenge!
