More information on the race itself: 

On 7 September, 2019, Bhutan will see the 10th running of the Tour of the Dragon, a one day mountain bike race from Bumthang to Thimphu over 268km, climbing over four mountain passes with a total climbing ascent over 13,100 feet. This race is not only considered one of the most difficult (and craziest) one day races, but also the most scenic with the Bumthang – Thimphu highway passing thru stunning scenic river valleys, dense rich pine and cypress forests, terraced farms and prayer flag strewn mountain passes.
