67 top notch cyclists from 14 countries will be starting a unique journey tomorrow with the usually genial Himalayas waiting to welcome them. The official briefing of the Hero MTB Himalaya '16 just concluded in the Woodville Palace Hotel in Shimla. Here are the best photos for you to savour.
In the end you have a picture of Cory Wallace, 2014's winner, getting awarded with the 'King of Himalayas' jersey. That's what the rest of the riders will be competing for this year.
Stay tuned for Race Day 1 tomorrow.
