As an event organizer and lover of adventure these times of restrictions and uncertainty have been personally challenging.
Without further delay, out of respect for you and your situation, the MBC team has decided to postpone the 2021 Mongolia Bike Challenge to August 12-21, 2022.
I struggled with this decision. Since uncertainty is harder to deal with than a known cancellation, especially if the cancellation comes with sufficient notice, I believe the most prudent course is to postpone this years event.
The decision is based primarily on two factors.
First, even if Mongolia were to open its borders, there is no guarantee that we would be able to work in such a way that we could offer our best service before, during and after the event. Moreover, many of the racers who originally registered for the 2020 edition would not have been able to attend this year, and a forced situation helps no one.
I think we can all agree that uncertainty is worse than a prudent stop!
Thank you for understanding, I look forward to putting this all behind us and celebrating an incredible 2022 MBC with you.
PS: all the registered racers confirmed from 2020 to 2021 will automatically be confirmed for the 2022 edition
