Nuvali is the host once more for a mountain bike dirt race for this year, - the Dirt Weekend Invitational is a race sanctioned by the Philcycling and UCI. The event race under the UCI format includes Cross Country Olympics, Cross Country Team Relay and Four cross.
According to Philcyling Jojo Villa, that the race this weekend will be their search for the best mountain bike rider that can be considered to qualify for the cross country race and other category , and will compete to represent our country for the SEA GAMEs in Myanmar this 2013.
I just learned that you need to have a Philcycling license, at first I thought that this mountain bike dirt race is like those regular fun run, but its a serious race that will determine the best rider to compete at the SEA GAMES. Wow!!! The Philcycling will be there to record all riders performance and each member will have the benefit to join other races and also compete for big racing tournaments.
