Silk Road Mountain Race 2022

The Silk Road Mountain Race is a fixed route, unsupported, single-stage cycling race through the mountains of Kyrgyzstan. The clock does not stop and there are no prizes. It follows gravel, single and double track and old soviet roads that have long been forgotten and fallen into disrepair. There is very little tarmac. There is some walking, and at times there is great distances between resupply points.

WHEN: August 12th to August 27th, 2022
WHERE: Start in Osh & finish in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan
WHO: Racers can ride solo or as a pair
DISTANCE: ~1895 kilometres / 34,500m of climbing. Fixed route with 3 staffed checkpoints.
END: After party the evening of August 27th, 2022

The race starts on the 12th of August 2022 with a ‘grand départ’ at midnight from Osh, in southern Kyrgyzstan. Riders will follow a 1900 kilometre fixed route that passes through three staffed control points. They will need to get a stamp in their brevet card at each, before finally heading to the finish line in Bishkek, the capital city, for a well deserved post-race beer or two. To earn a successful finish they will need to complete the course before the end of the after party on the 27th of August.

How tough it will be cannot be understated, but as Mike Hall once said, “Nothing that’s worth anything is ever easy.” This race will be a true demonstration of this sentiment.
