The second format is of two days from Manali to Jispa. The participants can then complete the journey with support vehicles or take a leisurely cycling trip further.
The third format is for participants who want to enjoy the ride and not be a part of the race. "The championship is a test of ability and endurance where the cyclists are not only pitched against each other but also against the sheer elements in surreal surroundings in this high-altitude region," race organiser Northern Escapes' founder Gaurav Schimar said. "Each year, hundreds of cyclists from across the world cycle on this route but this is the first time a race is being organised on this circuit. With the times to come, this race is aimed to become an international event with cyclists from across the globe participating in it. This race is to encourage and ensure that we can put India on the global cycling circuit," he said.
