Welcome to the Volunteer Program

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!

Finesse Opportunities open this season
