100km MTB RACE ROUTE

 

Unlike most race routes nowadays, this route is aimed at making a very long ride non-technical. The difficulty of this race lies in the distance , not the terrain.

A large portion of the race takes place on district road, and when you are trying to crush 106 kilometers, that’s a good thing. It allows you to have a higher average speed and that means a faster finishing time. 

 

There are relatively few big long sustained climbs on the route.

 

Don't forget to look up and enjoy where you are, riding in the stunning Eastern Freestate, with the Maluti mountains in the distance.

50km MTB RACE ROUTE

 

For some people contemplating 100kms whilst their behind and legs ache is just a little bit beyond them and for this reason we have brought you the 50km option. 

Using a large portion of the 100km route this race will take riders along gravel roads (no single track), through farmlands and all the while surrounded by the stunning Eastern Free State sandstone cliffs and farms.

This is a ride to be enjoyed!
