This is the first of hopefully more monthly Nam Challenge Routes. For June, time yourself on this route and post your time on FaceBook or Instagram and tag @Nemba.Vietnam. Challenge yourself to do better each time.

The following kudos will be awarded. (We are not sure if we have any prizes so you will have to settle with everyone being very proud of you.)
1. Fastest Time(s)
2. Most Number of Attempts
3. Oldest
4. Youngest
5. Widest Tires
6. Skinniest Tires

Rules:
1. We don't care how you time yourself, Strava, TrailForks, stopwatch or your little brother counting in his head, but this is for fun and maybe prosperity so be honest.
2. Normal trail rules prevail. Yield to hikers, slow riders, horses, undersized ostriches and any others that are 'going too slow'. If you are caught harassing others so you can beat your time you will immediately be disavowed and/or strongly disliked by the entire MTB community.

Start at the 4 Corners on 'The Main Trail'.
Take 'The Gig' to 'Gig Bail'.
Then turn right up 'The Main Trail' and bear left onto 'No Ledges'
At the top of 'No Ledges' take a left onto 'One Ledges'
At the bottom take a right on 'Three Ledges' and go all the way to the 4 Corners again.
Take 'The Gig' again, but this time go left onto 'Giggity' instead of down 'The Gig'
At the bottom of 'Giggity' take a left on ‘Three Sisters’.
Left again onto ‘Uppity Connector’ then right to ‘Uppity Climbing Trail’
Left onto ‘Back to The Gig’ then left on ‘The Gigg’
Run ‘The Gigg’ all the way to the bottom this time.
Take a right at the bottom on ‘Three Sisters’ and finish strong out to ‘The Main Trail’ at Grand Junction.
