The BMC Racing Team, powered by Mahindra, recently dominated the 2nd Mamburao Mountain Bike Challenge or the Mambukarera 2 having finished first, second, third and fourth places, respectively, in scenic Mamburao, the capital city of Mindoro Occidental. More than a hundred of the country’s top and toughest mountain bikers, some coming from as far as Mindanao, joined the bikefest organized by the city government. The Mahindra Enforcer, known to the public as the workhorse patrol vehicle of the Philippine National Police (PNP), was the prime mover in the said event.
Declared winners from Team BMC in the grueling race were: Alvin Benosa, Champion, Men’s Open/Elite category; EJ Flores, 3rd Place, Men’s Open/Elite category; GicaLimjoco, second Place, Women’s Open category; and Archie Duran, fourth Place, Men’s 18-25 category.
The race followed a cross-country Olympic format where bikers made loops in a 3.8-kilometer track. The men’s Elite class to completed seven loops or roughly 25 kilometers, while the women’s class finished four loops or roughly 15 kilometers.
As in other bike fests that Mahindra has sponsored in the past, the Mahindra Enforcer was the lead vehicle and overall mobility partner of the 2016 Mambukarera.
Mahindra is the manufacturer and provider of the Enforcer patrol units that the PNP has deployed to help secure peace and order in local communities across the country, but also to support in disaster and relief operations. The Mahindra Enforcer is currently the No. 1 light commercial vehicle in India. It is also the staple not only of the Indian military and security forces but also of other country’s military forces which have found in the Mahindra Enforcer the toughness, ruggedness and dependability best suited to secure their borders, and maintain homeland peace and order.
