Haiti Preps For First-Ever Mountain Bike Race

Are you into mountain bike racing? Do you love nature? Do you want to conquer undiscovered places in Haiti? If yes, then don't let yourself get left behind. It's time for you to register at the upcoming Mountain Bike Haiti Stage Race. The first-ever pro race will kick off on January 30 next year.


The race track runs through the Haiti National Park, some parts of which are still unchartered territory. During the five-day event, competitors are set to participate in ecosystem building projects. Then, they will race through a total of 85 miles, biking along the Chaine de la Selle mountain range; starting from Port au Prince to Jacmel. The participants are expected to traverse extreme terrains and rocky roads. The event will close with a Carnaval celebration, wherein participants will get to party with the locals in Jacmel community.

Because the trail is steep, rigid and extreme, only those who are trained and capable should enter the Mountain Bike Race in Haiti. The good thing about the event is that it will allow Haiti citizens to discover greater and magnificent views in the country.

Philip Kiracofe, the owner of US-based Travelcology and who spearheads the entire event, believes that the race would be good for Haiti's tourism. Allowing mountain bikers to witness the beauty of Haiti's untapped mountain range can lead to several more beneficial and productive competitions. This can then attract investors to the country, helping boost the country's tourism and entire economy.

The registration for the event is ongoing. In fact, professional rider Sonya Looney has already registered with other bike enthusiasts.
