After several days of non stop action in Monterey, Trek/VW pro Chris Eatough will not be heading home from the Sea Otter to prepare for NORBA XC #1 in Fontana, CA in a few weeks. Instead he will be hopping on a plane to Pudong, China to race in the first ever Zhongkun Huangshan MTB Festival. Eatough, the 2005 NORBA Marathon Series Champion, six-time world and two-time national 24 hour solo champion, will tie in some visits to local Trek dealers in town and also make a stop at the Shanghai Bike Show – the equivalent of Interbike in China. The marathon event there expects to draw the fastest distance racers in the East.
The official name of the race in China is the Zhongkun Huangshan MTB Festival”; the event is organized by CCA, Huangshan Municipality Government and Nordic Ways. Please visit www.huangshanbike.com for more details on the event.
