DDK VIETNAM VICTORY CHALLENGE EVENTS

The DDK Vietnam Victory Challenge MTB Stage Race started with 101 riders in 2015. The event was the first ever international open mountain bike race in Vietnam and hosted athletes from more than 6 countries. For 2016 we’ve returned with the VVC MTB Stage Race and the all new VVC Trail Run. This 50K Ultramarathon, half and 10k event was added by request of members of the running community here in Vietnam and will take place one week after the MTB race covering many of the same routes. We are excited to be part of the growth of outdoor sports in Vietnam and we look forward to see you in Dalat this March.

Vision The DDK Vietnam Victory Challenge events were created in an effort to help grow outdoor sports in Vietnam and initially, specifically the sport of mountain biking. Another goal is to create employment and experience within the  outdoor industry for Vietnamese citizens.  All of this while trying to teach locals about the importance of nature conservation. As someone whose life has been centered around cycling and the outdoors, the race founder created the event with the personal knowledge that cycling and racing can change lives.
“As a kid, mountain biking provided me my first real freedom and helped me get my first gainful employment at a local bike shop. My bike started me down a path that still provides for my family today. I’m forever grateful for that first mountain bike and the life lessons I learned earning the money to pay for it. As much as I’ve tried at different times in life to distance myself from bikes and bike racing, it’s just part of who I am. I’m happiest when I’m doing just about anything involving bikes or the outdoors, so putting together these events has been extremely rewarding. Cycling has long been my personal anti-depressant and has made me and my life better. I hope our events can do for others what my bike has done for me.”
