Speaking about the participation of the team Ashish Sood, manager of the Hero Action Team said, “We are very excited with the win. Though we were confident about our chances, grabbing three out of the four top spots has given our confidence an extra boost. We look forward to competing with professional cyclists from across the country and will strive to prove ourselves no matter how tough the competition is.”

Hero Action Team uses UT bikes, India’s most trusted mountain biking brand of cycles, to compete in all cycling events. Hero Action Team is sponsored by Hero Cycles, world’s largest bicycle manufacturer, and managed by HASTPA (Himalyan Adventure Sports and Tourism Promotion Association) in a joint effort to promote mountain biking in India.
