This is the UCI accredited HK Cyling Association website. They organise pretty much every type of cycling race in HK with varying degrees of success. Less successful are their MTB races, although currently they the only organisers of DH events in HK. You'll need to sign up for a season membership, which I think is HK$100

For shuttles, Tai Mo Shan is the place. You'll see van loads of DH riders on the weekends, congregating at the bus stop at the top of Route Twisk. (Some of them just love to stand around, pose, and smoke...;) ) Its entirely informal, and as such you'll need to find someone and invite yourself into their group!

Happy DHing

where does one go to register for the next DH race in HK? Is there a series? Im new to HK and love DH. I do a lot in Australia. Are there any clubs that one can join in order to attend group rides and shuttle days etc?

Hi launchpad,

i'm Olivier, owner of TEAM OF PARIS, the superbike team based in HK, engaged in Macau moto grand prix, Thailand SBK Pro championship. Pan delta SPP championship, NW200. Isle Of Man TT,...

I also supporting runners/riders in adventure race (Action Asia, outbound,...) since jan.2010

I'm always in need of speed and I just bought a Giant glory to try DH.

I like this sport and decide to build a DH team with the support of my sponsors (TAG HEUER, SWISSBAG,... to name a few) to race in HK first, then in Asia pacific later, and why not Europe if the level of the team is up-to expectation. I've been told there's few topguns in HK, but no team to follow-up.

I need somebody experienced in racing in HK to help me in this new challenge and it looks you well know the community.

would you be interest to join?

please let me know
