2nd annual Doi Suthep Time Trials

Cyclists line up before the start of the time trial.

By Marcus Macguire, Crouching Tiger Cycling Tours
Sunday, September 16, 2012 saw the second annual running of the Doi Suthep Individual Time Trial; an event for cyclists to pit themselves against the famous Chiang Mai climb. Known as the race of truth, a time trial is more a race against oneself than a race against one’s competitors. And on this occasion the challenge was to cycle approximately 11km uphill from the foot of the mountain to the temple Wat Phra That Doi Suthep.
The field comprised of cyclists of varying abilities and motivations; from super fit athletes, who came to make their mark and record the best possible time up the mountain, to the casual cyclist, there for a fun ride up the “Doi” and to say that they took part. Overnight rains ensured slightly milder conditions for the event, essential for a top performance.
Riders were sent off at one minute intervals to cycle up the mountain and have their time registered upon arrival at the temple. With an average uphill gradient of 6% the route is a test of pure strength more than technique. The best time of the day, which is also the fastest recorded ride to date, was 26’51” by Frenchman Peter Pouly, ridden on a road bicycle. The best time ridden on a Mountain Bike was 31’42” by Jantanboon Griangchaiphraipanah.
For avid cyclists, the ride up Doi Suthep is a source of great pleasure as much as it is a challenge. With fantastic roads and scenic views you can understand the attraction of this place. (All photos by Ronnakit Norkham, courtesy of Crouching Tiger Cycling Tours)
