The riders of Sri Lanka’s premier mountain biking challenge, SriLankan Holidays’ Rumble in the Jungle 2016, rode through the challenging terrains of Haputale during Day 2 of their tour.

It was flagged off on 14 June from Kuda Oya in the Moneragala district.

Almost 40 riders representing 14 countries – Nepal, UK, Germany, Australia, Austria, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka, and the United States, will be battling it out through mountain roads and off-road trails for a podium finish on 17 June in Kandy.

The race that was flagged off from Kuda Oya trailed along to Haputale and from thereon to Kalupahana, Horton Plains, Nuwara Eliya and Ramboda to be wound off in Kandy on 17 June.

Rumble in the Jungle 2016 is organised by international mountain bike race organiser The Yak Attack, in association with title sponsor, the national carrier’s leisure arm, SriLankan Holidays and Sri Lanka’s best known professional adventure sports promoter Lanka Sportreizen.
