Biggest Prize Money in the WORLD for an MTB event at the Langkawi International Mountain Bike Challenge (LIMBC) 2014

We are pleased to announce the TOTAL prize money of over half a million Ringgit Malaysia or USD150,000 is up for grabs at the Langkawi International Mountain Bike Challenge (LIMBC) 2014, making the LIMBC 2014 as the biggest prize money purse in the world for any mountain bike (MTB) event.

The LIMBC 2014 prize money is a lucrative increase of USD25,000 from last year’s edition, with the objective to attract more participation from local and regional MTB enthusiasts across five categories – Men’s Elite, Men’s Open, Women’s Elite, Men’s Master and Senior Men’s Master.

LIMBC 2014 is also set to offer a refreshed outlook for weekend warriors or novice riders aged between 30 to 39 years old with the opportunity to seize the prize money via the newly introduced Men’s Open category and maintaining the Men’s Elite category exclusively for National, State and Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) ranked international riders.

The dates for LIMBC 2014 are scheduled from 13 to 18 October 2014 with weekend warriors and top UCI ranked international riders lining up side by side to race and compete on the same technical, demanding and fun course on the legendary island of Langkawi.

Registrations for LIMBC 2014 and Jamboree Fun Ride are already open. You can register NOW at www.LIMBCMalaysia.com.

The 5th edition of the Langkawi International Mountain Bike Challenge would continue to live up to its expectations as the hottest race in the world with thrills, spills, excitements and challenges.

For last year’s edition, approximately 250 weekend warriors and top ranked Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) international riders competed in LIMBC 2013 and another 2,000 MTB enthusiasts had participated in the Jamboree Fun Ride.

This display of overwhelming support and participation demonstrates that the sport of Mountain Biking is alive and thriving in Malaysia.

“For LIMBC 2014, we are intensifying our efforts to attract more Asian riders. At the moment, there’s every possibility a large contingent from top professional Asian riders will ride on the gruelling LIMBC tracks in October this year. We were informed that there are many top MTB riders in Asia who want to race in Langkawi following the success story of Kohei Yamamoto (Japan) of Team Specialized Racing who clinched the Men’s overall champion last year.

“We are also refining the Men’s Open specifically tailored for 30 to 39 years old riders to cater the tremendous number of enthusiastic weekend warriors who ride, train and play just as hard as everyone else,” said Datuk Malik Mydin, Chief Executive Officer of Human Voyage, the organiser of LIMBC 2014.

In 2013, the tournament witnessed the first ever overall champion from Asia - Kohei Yamamoto (Japan) of the Team Specialized Racing after donning the yellow jersey for three days, an arena traditionally dominated by top ranked riders from Europe.

Lea Davison (USA) of the Specialized Racing Team had also successfully defended her title in the Women’s Open after emerging as the overall winner from the previous year, after overcoming intense challenges from an increasingly strong women’s field with hot new emerging talents snapping at her heels, coming out of Asia.

We are happy to report that over the years - the LIMBC as the one and only multi-stage mountain bike race in South East Asia - has grown from strength to strength with meticulous improvements to the course and challenging trails, designed for a world class mountain bike racing with open single track-trails, traversing a multitude of terrains including rubber plantations, idyllic beaches, paddy fields and riding in 300 million year old dense rainforest!

The continuous demand from top international UCI ranked riders and teams, coupled with a growing interest from Asian riders and teams and our very own MTB riders, has resulted in a rapidly growing number of individual mountain biking enthusiast who travel from near and far to Langkawi for an amazing week of mud, adventure and holiday, for a challenge and fun in the sun.

LIMBC has been recognized and sanctioned by the world governing body Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) as a world class Mountain Bike (MTB) event, providing riders with hard to gain world ranking points with for its impressive standard of race tracks and event organisation - making it a leading, must attend MTB event in Asia.
