BBCh Race Disclaimer:
Kindly Note: Bangalore Bicycle Championships is totally run by volunteers, and we are extremely short of hands. In the event, pre-event, or post-event, there may be a few human errors that are completely unintentional. To sort out those errors or issues, we might take some time, which may seem longer than usual, but again, that is because of the crunch of resources. We understand that these events are run by the registration fees collected from the participants, and naturally, the participants can expect the basic error-free running of the event. But we sincerely request that you all bear with us for any delay. Thank you for your understanding.
