Kawayantech raced their bamboo bikes at the Dirt Weekend bike event held at Nuvali in sta. rosa laguna last Nov.27-28,2010. we entered two racers, Eng and Russ Chan in the cross country category and two teams in the 24 hr MTB race. our first team, Kawayantech-Nemar placed 2nd in the all male category, completing 116 laps around the 3.5km loop and our second team, Lagalag-KawayanTech, placed 7th with 98 laps.
Our bamboo bikes performed very well. The only problems we had came from the bike components.
Tammy Villanueva with the twins Bixia and Quintin, dropped by on Sunday to cheer and give encouragement to the team in the final hours of the race. Hecky was looking forward to this event and we know that up there he’s proud that his dreams for the future of bamboo bikes are slowly being accomplished.
