Vinh Phuc Cross Country 2017 held on October 22.

Vinh Phuc Cross Country 2017 aims to encourage cycling and tighten friendships among the cycling teams.

The Vietnam MTB Series co-operated with Vietnam Motorbike Federation to hold the six-stage tournament that started in Binh Duong Province on January 15 and will end with Nui Dinh Cross Country stage on November 26.

After competing on roads, dirt trails and even stairs at the Hung Kings memorial area in District 9, Ho Chi Minh City, Vinh Phuc Cross Country is the first stage held in the northern region. Bikers will test their skills on village roads, steep slopes and through many tourist areas such as Paradise Dai Lai Resort and Flamingo Resort.

The chip timing will continue to be used to help measure the race results accurately.

There are six amateur races for male age from 12 to 18, 19 to 40, 41 to 50 and 51 to 62, female age from 12-29 and 30-65. There are also 37km races for professional male and female bikers.
