Kawthoung Town will host the Mountain Bike Challenge 2019 with the cooperation of the Kawthoung District Sports and Physical Education Department and the Kawthoung Cycling Club (KTCC) on 19 October.
Cyclists and bike lovers from Dawei, Myeik, and Kawthoung districts have been invited to participate in the mountain bike competition. The competition has been divided into two categories — for challengers above 40 years old and players under 40 years of age. The first, second, and third place winners from each category will be awarded and cyclists who arrive at the finish point within an hour and 30 minutes will be awarded finisher prizes. The objectives of the competition are to encourage young bike lovers and strengthen ties between cyclists in three districts. The mountain bike competition will be held annually in those towns alternately, according to the organizers. —Kyaw Soe (Kawthoung)
