The third edition of the Assam Downhill Championship will be held from December 19-20 in Guwahati on the Monkey Temple Trail located on the Hengerabari hill near VIP Road.

Like the previous editions, this year too top riders from across the country have registered to participate in the championship.

Due to Covid19 pandemic, the number of participants has been limited to 60 this year.

Assam Downhill Championship (ADC) was formed by Spokehub with a single-minded mission to provide a platform for downhill riders across India to meet for one common purpose – Gravity defying Racing.

This year is the third edition of the race.

The inaugural edition of ADC in 2018 had around 45 riders from different parts of North East and Himachal Pradesh whereas last year’s edition had 50+ riders from the Northeastern states in addition to Maharashtra and Sikkim.

Since 2019, the organisers have been developing the Monkey Temple trail professionally under the guidance of senior national champion Gautam Taode from Maharashtra, said a press statement.

Winners of the previous editions of the race went on to win medals at the national level as well.

Skilled riders above 14 years will be participating for the top positions in the Hard Tail and Full Suspension categories.

From this year, the race is being managed by trailnexus.in, a trail sports event platform focused on mountain biking and trail running. Spokehub Cycling, Pedal for a Change and Whacky Talky are the organisations behind the event.
