Rosso Cup 2020

Rosso Cup postponed

Continuous heavy rains have resulted in the rescheduling of the highly-anticipated event that is to be held at the National Botanic Gardens in Lae, Morobe Province.

The organising committee said the bad weather has unfortunately created major hazards or risks, including the safety of the riders, and further, the conditions mean that the botanical gardens will be affected by mud and damage to the environment.

City set for mountain bike race

The Rosso Cup, a first for the province in partnership with the Forest Research Institute, is a family-friendly event that is set for the 19th of September.

Over 500 cyclists have registered for the inaugural event that will be hosted at the Lae Botanical Gardens. While tickets are needed for the botanical garden, cyclists will also race around the Raun Wara area, which is a free-to-watch event.
