Nkomazi MTB Challenge

The Nkomazi MTB Challenge is a new Mountain Bike race on the South African Calendar, it promises to be a spectacular event and with a large prize purse on offer it is sure to attract some of the big names in the local racing scene.  Situated in the semi tropical climate of the Nkomazi valley the race will be a welcome escape from the cold highveld winter offering some spectacular riding and different terrain from the usual forests and plantations in most races. Also, being at the end of winter it marks the start of the new racing season so the event is ideally positioned to get in some early training or test those legs prior to heading off for the spring stage races.

Mountain biking is the fastest growing sport in South Africa, its beauty lies in the opportunity for whole families to get out and enjoy our fantastic landscape whilst getting fit and healthy. Mountain Biking is an extreme sport that anyone can get into regardless of age, it is fun and safe and there are many clubs and events to cater for all abilities – The Nkomazi Challenge MTB race is designed with this in mind, there’s a distance for everyone from the smallest kids to the seasoned Pro!   Laerskool Malelane will host the event and is planning a whole family fun day with activities and attractions for all, making this race a ‘must do’ on the local calendar. Routes will include the following:

A 65 km route for the “pro-cyclist” with lots of experience

A 35 km route which is still challenging, but more accessible for the average cyclist

A 10 km route for families, children and beginner cyclists

Fun rides for small children on the school premises and a 5 km ride for young enthusiasts
