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!
