TAGBILARAN CITY, July 14 (PIA) -- One more pound to add to the weight of Bohol's claim that "it has it all": mountain trail motorbiking in Alicia town.
Alicia Panoramic Park, a gorgeous series of hills dominating the interestingly grassy rolling Cambaol, which is also the first Bohol Mountain bike Trail Park now opens its wicked trails to dirt bikes and their daredevil motocross riders on July 27, 2017.
Conceptualized by Alicia's homegrown 1st Line Bohol East Trail Bikers, the Alicia 1st Rally Cross came two years after town local officials led by Mayor Marnilou Ayuban and Vice Mayor Victoriano Torres III greenlighted the now institutionalized Alicia Mountain Bike Festival.
Dirt rally cross is about braaaping along dangerous undulating and twisting trails at crazy speeds, squeezing every strength out of the bike, to the finish.
"We wish to invite local dirt motorbike trail riders who should have the guts of steel and the heartbeat as dependable as their bikes to join us in this race to the top and zip downhill with the province's most tricky and treacherous trails. Oh well, this should shake off the grime from your seldom revved to the max engines machines, as this certainly offers the most punishing revs from that dependable bike," East Trail Bike President Romulo Bazalo said.
This would be racing to the edge while all the while knowing any half second of break in concentration can send one to the back of an ambulance, or one's motorbike: a bulky yard sale.
While there are circuit motocross races in Bohol, seldom have there been trail rally crosses that this promises to be the ultimate test of a driver's skill, an ultimate high risk but de-stressing race, the Alicia tourism officer added.
With teams outside Bohol now sending feelers of joining, this would be the perfect time for Boholano enthusiasts and novice and pros to show off their guts and make rally cross an event in Bohol.
