Enduro Biking Champ Chris Birch Coming to PH
Current and eight-time New Zealand Enduro champion Chris Birch is coming to the Philippines, and he is all-set to impart some of his vast knowledge and experience when he holds the Chris Birch Off-Road Clinic here, a skills and riding education program sponsored by Bikerbox Inc., the company behind the distribution of Mitas Tires locally.
As self-described ‘life-long motorcycle addict,’ Birch has been sharing the secrets to his success to bikers around the world since 2007. What started out as a way to raise money to compete internationally, has blossomed into a full-time coaching business for the famed Kiwi rider.
“We will start the year strong to promote off-road riding and skills enhancement to the local ADV communities in the Philippines,” said a statement from Bikerbox. “This marks the beginning of more off-road training/clinics for 2019 for the benefit of all local riders in terms of skills enhancement and riding education through Mitas-KRB Off-road Track (Manila) and Mitas-Mindanao Enduro.”
The Chris Birch clinic will comprise two legs, with the first to be held at the 36-hectare Mitas-KRB Offroad Track in Rizal from January 24 to 26.
It will then travel to the province of Misamis Oriental, specifically to the Mitas-Mindanao Enduro Park in Brgy. Bagocboc, Municipality of Opol, a biking facility developed by Mitas Tires PH in conjunction with Norminring Motorbikes. This one will be held from January 28 to 29.
