2013 Results

The 6th Team Dai Challenge was another big success. Fund raising efforts have generated US$19,748, the official record for a Team Dai challenge! All the money raised was transferred to the local organization AFESIP Laos ( which combats the causes and consequences of human trafficking and sexual exploitation of Laotian women and girls. The organization was extremely grateful, mentioning that the Team Dai support will made a huge difference in the running of the program and in the life of the AFESIP supported victims.

The ride itself was, as its name suggests, a real challenge. Twenty-three riders of 7 different nationalities pushed their limits to complete a trying Vientiane to Luang Prabang route through some very remote and beautiful parts of the country. The total distance was 380 km in 3 days, including a 12 km long climb with more 2,000m of elevation gain. For all the riders, these three days will remain a very special memory.
