In India, Hero MotoCorp has launched a new program. The Hero Dirt Biking Challenge is what it’s called (HDBC). It is an OEM’s first-of-its-kind pan-India talent-hunting program (original equipment manufacturer).
The Hero Dirt Biking Challenge aims to provide a much-anticipated platform for aspiring riders, enthusiasts, and amateurs who want to pursue their passion for off-road racing and make a name for themselves in the field.
The HDBC will reach as many as 45 cities to find India’s top amateur off-road riders, making it truly pan-national by spanning the entire country. The winner and two runners-up will receive the popular Hero Xpulse 200 4V motorcycle as well as Hero MotoCorp sponsorship contracts worth Rs. 20 lakh.
In order to increase its popularity among young people, the HDBC will be broadcast on MTV and streamed on Voot in November 2022.
Interested participants can register for the Hero Dirt Biking Challenge and get more information at www.hdbc.in. Following the screening of online submissions, the first rounds will be held over multiple weekends in 45 cities, with the shortlisted participants moving on to the regional rounds, which will be held in 18 cities. The top-100 riders will attend a five-day regional boot camp, where they will have another golden opportunity to be trained by none other than ace Indian rider CS Santosh.
The boot camp will conclude with a race, and the top 20 participants will advance to the finals, which will be held at Hero MotoCorp’s state-of-the-art R&D centre in Jaipur, the world-class Center of Innovation of Technology (CIT). The top riders will be trained and mentored by the Hero MotoSports Team Rally over the course of five days at CIT before the final race to determine the eventual winner of the coveted prize.
