The 2nd Cross-Himalaya International Ultimate Cycling Race kicked off on October 8 in Nyingchi, southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region. The race is divided into a road cycling race and a mountain bike race and attracted 119 participants in 28 teams from China, Ukraine, Nepal, and other countries.
"This year, both Chinese and foreign professional teams participated in the race. The overall level of the event is much higher than last year's, and the competition is more intense," said Sun Hui, who participated in the race for the second time and who has been cycling for more than nine years.
Sun Hui has participated in many domestic long-distance endurance cycling competitions. Between 2015 and 2019, he participated in the eight-day Sichuan to Tibet Extreme Challenge race five consecutive times and won the championship each time, setting a world record time of six days and 56 minutes.
