We will cross a granite mountain with itsstrage rocks, you will believe to be in a parallel world!

Day Chronicle
Another hot, sunny stage at the 2012 Mongolia Bike Challenge presented by Orbea. The Mongolian National team rider, Tuguldur Tuulkhangai, lead early today, charging to the head of the lead pack. At the top of the next major climb at 50 kilometers, it was the Mongolian followed by Zamora (Buff), Hovey (MBC-Orbea-SMP), and Wallace (Kona), followed by Hagener and Salleh (Chiru-WTB), and Paelinck (Reevax). Sneddon and Wicks (Kona) were about three minutes back due to a flat tire. The pair quickly made up the time, though, and 10 kilometers later it was just Hovey, Zamora and the three Kona riders. This stayed the same for the last 40 kilometers ending in a five person sprint to the finish. Barry Wicks was first to the line, followed by his teammates, Kris Sneddon and Cory Wallace. Wallace still holds the overall lead and is looking strong, especially with the ongoing support of his teammates. An exciting women´s race has developed as Liesbeth Hessens has pulled within a few minutes of the Elisabeth Adamson who has now won three out of the four stages.

Interview with Pau Zamora, Team Buff International: by Ryan Leech

What is the hardest thing physically about the MBC?

The hardest thing is that I destroy my body a little more each day, so most important is that after the race I do everything perfect, drink and eat well, shower and stretch, massage and relax. I can do this well because I have done many races and understand my body well.


Is there anything harder than this race?

I only have 24 hours in a day, so balancing hours with my wife, son, and work without compromising my training is very hard.


What do you learn about yourself by participating in adventures such as the MBC?

In the race I have a plate number, but I learned it´s most important at the end that I see places and meet people that share the same lifestyle; I learn that my most important goal is to enjoy the race more than whether I win, and to enjoy the moments in camp relaxing with friends which I often enjoy even more than the racing.
