If you’re into biking, then I’m sure the Nuvali Dirt Weekend is something you’re already familiar with. But in case you aren’t, you better start training because you wouldn’t want to miss it!

Nuvali’s “Dirt Weekend” has been regarded as one of the major mountain bike events in the country, as well as one of Nuvali’s signature events that encapsulate the sustainability philosophy that the eco-city strives to adhere to. This year’s much-awaited cycling weekend will also be the venue for the Philippine qualifying leg of the World Mountain Bike Championship. Nice!

The Dirt Weekend is a mountain biking (MTB) event that has been happening yearly since 2009. It is recognized as one of the premium cycling events in the country that professionals and enthusiasts look forward to every year. Other than bike races, there are also fringe activities designed for families and friends who show their support during the race weekend such as a bike expo and food fair.
