ABOUT THE RACE
We would like to thank all 225 riders from 32 nations and their supporters joining the Masters Tour of Chiang Mai 2017 on last October 21 to 24 and making it a huge success.
The idea of Masters or age category cycle racing enjoys an increasing popularity around the globe. With “MTCM”, we especially attract an ever more competitive range of riders in each category. Each year numerous Thai, Singaporean and other countries’ National Champions and UCI Gran Fondo World Championship’s top contenders join and compete which gives the race a high profile.
In 2018, we are again planning to split all riders into 3 pelotons, so we may cater for some more riders and may as well try to group more homogenously. Instead of 3 road stages, there will only be 2, rounded up by a circuit race on a very nice, traffic free 5 km circuit with rolling hills and finally of course the classic ITT up Doi Suthep.
During the event you will be based in the city of Chiang Mai, with the 2 road stages starting with a rolling start from Hotel Sirinart Garden, our race headquarters and finish within cycling distance from there.
In response to your feedback from previous races we will once again offer you a full service stay at the “Kantary Hills Chiang Mai”: Riders and team members will be able to book the package at that nice 4-star hotel located right in Nimmanhaemin area, only 2 kms away from the race headquarters. Optionally you also may book the hotel accommodation there only if you don’t want to join the organized dinners. Details for the MTCM 2018 packages and hotel booking will be released soon.
Next year’s dates are from October 21-24, 2018 and you are all most welcome to join!
As we had a very positive feedback for our circuit race at Chiang Mai Rajabhat University replacing the White Buddha road stage, we will leave things unchanged for 2018. Find detailed information as to the 4 planned stages at the MTCM stages overview page
