Goa TT – Race 2 – Chadreshwar – 13-12-2020

The Chandreshwar Hill climb used to be like a graduation at one time, one needed to be a good cyclist to attempt this elevation challenge!  Thanks to the Time Trials organised by Cycling Goa and supported by Xaxti Riders early in this Covid year, this hill has been seeing more and more people attempting, enjoying and excelling this 4.04 km long and  255 mts elevation gain ... timed sprints and endurance repeats!

An electric and festive atmosphere today at  Race II Goa Time Trials!!!  The Chandreshwar Hill Climb!!

A climb not to be underestimated every rider put in his or her all and one could just admire! The Xaxticars of course made merry with the riders improving on their timing and our Talent Search Team youngsters hitting the leaderboard in comfort! Xaxti Riders volunteers were in full strength and in their element,  lauding and cheering all the participants at various points along  the climb. Not to be missed were Sumukh, Terence, Vijaybab, Vishal , Mohnish, Ajay Dongre and Lynn  clicking away merrily!! A big thanks to all the members of Xaxti Riders, Slopes and Bends and Vasco Cyclist for their support in making this event a grand success.

Fantastic camaraderie atop the summit along with typical goan hot and crisp samosas and a vada pav breakfast! Chandreshwar special 'ganjan chai' to clinch it!

Leaderboard positions were claimed and Personal Records were created on this beautiful crisp December Sunday morning at Chandreshwar Hill marking the finale of this competitive event which had started in the January of this year!   While the world has been in the throes of Covid , it has indeed been a year of lots of cycling miles and elevations for all of us here in the cycling community of Goa!

May we always Live to Ride!!!
Viva Cycling Viva Goa!

    Cycling Goa and xaxti riders put their Heart and soul out to plan This event . Very meticulously planned and flawlessly executed. With everyone contributing in their capacity, just to promote the love for cycling.
    It was a perfect test , a set of two trials, testing your abilities both in speed and strength, one along the coast and one in the jungle, revealing the beauty of goa as well.
    Next time I can foresee people from
    Out of Goa coming down just to participate in This chalenge and making it even more grand and sought after.

    The concept of TT is simply amazing. The interesting part is that the Part 1 was in the flats and the second Part was for Hill Climb. Extremely well organized and strong Riders from all over Goa participating. The organizers did extremely well to make sure everything was just perfect. And very well summarized by Binota Nadkarni.

  9. Very cool blog, Binny. This was a must see event and the blog by Binny , the photos from Terence and the video from mohanish did due justice to this superbly crafted event…. Cheers to Cycling
