Saigon Cyclo Challenge

Written by


This year’s Saigon Cyclo Challenge organised by Saigon Children’s Charity at Celadon City (Tan Phu) attracted around 2,000 attendees and raised almost US$25,000 to support Saigon Children’s Charity in its mission of ‘Eliminating Poverty through Education’. Working towards its 25th Anniversary next year (1992 to 2017), SCC is aiming to provide 2,500 scholarships and build 16 schools during 2016.


This year’s event welcomed 12 competitive teams from a variety of industries and organisations. Each race heat mixed cyclo racing with team challenges portraying the daily life of students in the Mekong Delta. In the Grand Final, Guardian, taking part for the first time, won a spectacular victory over returning team AIM and two former champions, Nutrifort who came second, and Caravelle Saigon who went home in third place.
