Yak Attack

Yak Attack - Highest mountain bike race on earth

The highest mountain bike race on earth

YAK ATTACK: a race like no other. Climbing to the dizzying heights of 5416m above sea level, this race is the highest mountain bike race on Earth and now hosts the highest timed downhill enduro section – from 5416m down to 2800m above sea level over 8km!

Due to the excellent reviews of our 2019 event, the 2022 edition will follow a similar format – more flowy singletrack, more Enduro trails to shred with the snow-capped mountains of the Annapurna’s as the backdrop.

280km, 9000m of ascent, and 2 very unique loops around Besi Sahar and Kagenbi will bring 7 days of the most exciting and intense racing on the 2022 race calendar.

Altitude, temperature extremes, harsh living conditions, and a very tough terrain makes this race one of the hardest mountain bike races around… If you’re up for an adventure and have mental grit & physical fitness, then why not have an adventure of a lifetime and join us this year?!
