Banat-i trails host MTB XC challenge

TAGBILARAN CITY, October 8, (PIA)--By the time you are reading this today, October 8, extreme mountain bike enthusiasts would have geared up, gloves, shin guards and elbow pads strapped, helmets locked, dropper seat tested and Go-pro rolling. 

Or, maybe, some biker already had some podium souvenir shot after yet another extreme cross country (XC) mountain bike victory. 

Banat-i may be Tagbilaran's high, and seen from afar, this safe-looking rise decorating the city landscape hides in its veins of walking trails an option for a bike trail: from the easy slopes to the totally wicked technical sections that could get a tense biker lose his grip. 

Mount Banat-i bike circuits again offer the arena for this year's pro and amateur all-local competitive mountain bike race opened for men and the very few women enthusiasts who own nerves of steel. 

Bike Ta Bai, a local group of leisure turned competitive mountain bikers, who organized this year's 2nd Mountain Bike XC Challenge has closed the registration since October 2.
