This is an ongoing attempt (last update: Jan 20, 2014) to compile a calendar of all major cycle races/events in Asia.
This is a work in progress. It will be updated as and when new information emerges. If you know of a major cycling race/event that is not listed here, please feel free to leave a comment with a link to the event’s website.
Major cycle races in Asia (ordered by event date):
Note: You can click on the table header to re-sort the table in which ever way you like — by elevation gain, by distance, by grade… Also you can make your own shortlist by using the search — for instance if you type the word MTB only those columns that have the word ‘MTB’ in it will show.
|Name of Race||Race/Bike Type||Date||Country||Distance (km)||Duration (days)||Elevation Gain (m)||Grade (%)|
