10.80 km – 630 m vertical

This climb’s fame has spread far and wide: the 11.44 km and 720 m vertical climb from Chiang Mai up to Doi Suthep, the city’s famous and revered Golden Buddhist Pagoda, has become a cycling classic. For many years it has been the final challenge of our multi-day stage race, fit to dispel doubts of who will be crowned Masters Tour of Chiang Mai champion.

  • Start at Chiang Mai Zoo
  • Give what you’ve got for almost 10.80 km
  • Start lists will be available by 3 pm on Sunday, October 23, 2022 (TBC)
  • Trophy ceremony will take place right next to the finish line.
  • Race including trophy ceremony end by 12 pm latest, usually as early as 10:30 am, so plenty of time to get a shower and catch a mid-afternoon flight, if you have to leave so soon.
