Focus on Athlete: Erich Felbabel

Living and working in Hong Kong, Frenchman Erich Felbabel was an imposing figure in this year's Genghis Khan MTB Adventure. Tall, unrelenting and with the physique of a Greek statue, the Chiru-WTB ace put pressure on the Mongolians and the Triace boys all weekend to finish third overall. Not bad for a triathlete in only his second MTB event! Reason enough for a short Q&A with Erich Felbabel.


Focus on Athlete: Sarah Edson, winner of the 2012 Grassland Marathon

For a lot of people in China's running scene it was a pleasure to see the young Shanghai-based Briton Sarah Edson emerge victorious in the Grassland Marathon last summer. Forever enthusiastic, the 26-year old young woman has developed into a strong endurance runner over the years and become an inspiration for many fellow expats who have picked up the sport. What's more, as co-race director of a ultra running event in Kenya, Edson is actively engaged in raising funds to support secondary education for local Masaai girls in the African country. Reason enough for a brief Q&A.



Become the King of the Grasslands!

In the past six years there have been astonishing athletic accomplishments at our beloved Genghis Khan Festival. High time to put more spotlights on these. As of 2013, an additional feature, dubbed King of the Grasslands (KOG), will celebrate all the participants who combine mountainbiking with running during the 7th edition of the 3-day event.
