Work behind the scenes of Asia’s oldest mountain bike race- 14th Hero MTB Himalaya 2018!
The dynamics of a live mountain biking stage race require super talented individuals who can fit in multiple roles. Logistical challenges are a big task to handle when it comes to management. This calls for people who can flex themselves on short timelines, little sleep, untimed meals, lots of travel and huge learning opportunities!
Two weeks spent working with our teams round the clock (no kidding about this part) and travelling from Erstwhile British Captial- Shimla to Little Lhasa- Dharamshala will probably be the most stressful and yet amazingly wonderful events you shall cherish in years to come!
One of the most important jobs at the race- The guys who control what the world sees. Get an opportunity to feed the eyeballs of >1million audiences, Churn quirky and crisp captions within unrealistic timelines, Interact with the participants and sponsors at the race.
If slow internet, power banks and constant system crashes do not creep you out, you are the best fit for this job!
Key traits- Splendid communication skills, ornate writing ability and willingness to work long hours.
If you can ride the treacherous Himalayan offroads on a motorbike, this is for you. You will be responsible to track riders and ensure smooth operations during the race. The profile requires quick thinking, ability to take full ownership of task in hand and a strong get sh*t done attitude.
Note* : Must own a bike.
We are looking for young and enthusiastic individuals who can jump out of their comfort zone and multitask between jobs.
Your takeaway shall be a big family, some contacts you would encash in future and an experience of a lifetime, working behind the scenes for Asia’s oldest mountain biking stage race.

It was in May that I got the opportunity to be a part of Hero MTB Shimla 2017, and to say that every bit of this experience was absolute fun is probably an understatement. I was working with the media team which was responsible for ensuring the race's presence on all relevant platforms- we worked on press reports, stories, social media updates, etc.Poorva Gupta
I feel that the most terrific part of working with HASTPA is that one gets to interact with humans from all over the world and learn plenty about numerous cultures and perspectives. All in all, the mountains are beautiful, the people are accommodating and the experience is beyond adventurous. If you're looking for something that makes you love what you do, this would be one of the best events to volunteer for. I'd happily recommend it to anyone!
MTB Himalaya is one among my those favourite events, which help you experience the perfect amount of thrill and adventure, make you learn a lot of new things and help you grow to a whole new level. A little spark, a lot more enthusiasm and hard work with Himalayan delicacies is what it takes to reach the other end. Also, a golden chance to explore the raw Himachal and break the monotonous college schedule is always a plus one.Pankhuri Aggarwal
I've been a rider and a volunteer. Love every moment of the rally, it may be helping, marking, marshalling or rescue. Everything gives a unforgettable memory and the best experience.Prabjot
