Welcome to Yak Attack.
Yak Attack was the brainchild of race founder, Phil Evans. The original Yak Attack race around the Annapurna Himalayas was born out of Phil’s passion for adventure and a love of Nepal that began in 1989 after a two month trekking trip to the Annapurna region. His idea was to develop a mountain bike race that would test the mettle of the most adventurous athlete, and the Annapurna Circuit was decided to fit the bill perfectly. Following in the footsteps of the UK's famous Man v Horse events, the decision was made to also let runners enter the race; and, in 2007, 3 international mountain bikers, 1 international runner, 7 Nepali mountain bikers and 1 Nepali runner stood on the start line of Yak Attack in Besi Sahar, at the foot of the Annapurna Himalayas.
After eight years, the event has evolved into a pure mountain bike adventure race, which now attracts a wide array of world-class athletes, from current world ranking mountain bikers, to ex Tour-de-France and Olympic cyclists, to professional explorers; all seeking to be pushed to their limits in one of the most spectacular natural arenas on Earth.
Following the success of Yak Attack Annapurna, Phil and his team are in the process of bringing the unique Yak Attack race formula of Competition, Cameraderie, Adventure and Good Times to different regions of the world over the coming years through the Yak Attack World Challenge Series.
