EVENT INFORMATION: 

What started out as a dream is now a reality.  Having taken part in various stage races around South Africa, as well as often riding in the Howick/Karkloof region, we had a huge desire to bring a stage race to the KZN Midlands.

We identified that whilst there are amazing multiple stage races around the country it was time for something different.

What we want to achieve is to have mountain bikers of all levels enjoying our event. There will be something for everyone but most importantly the Midlands Stage Race will be an event that is accessible to all. If you are a weekend warrior or a person with an extremely busy life, committed to family or work or both (!) and don’t have the time to train all day every day and want to experience and enjoy a stage race, then this is the one for you.

We need to add that those of you that are mountain biking machines you will love doing this race too as you will have the afternoons to chill and chat with your friends and maybe family if you are a husband/wife or parent/child team. There will be time to have a few beers or a cold wine comfortable in the knowledge that a fun (but thrilling) ride awaits you the next day.

Remember this is a brand new event and you will be riding a mix of existing trails and trails created for this event ONLY! The routes will be through Sappi commercial plantations, jeep track, single track and along public gravel. Iconic points of interest have been purposefully included to expose you to the beauty and history of the Midlands area.

The routes have been created to make this event fast for those aiming for a podium finish but also easily manageable for the rider who is entering to experience their first stage race event. The emphasis is on fun for all.

In accordance with Cycling South Africa (CSA) rules we have made provision for junior age category riders to partake. These distances are shorter yet just as much fun. By doing this we are giving the younger riders the opportunity to experience stage racing, gain experience and mature to the full distance event.

All 3 days of the event start and finish at Howick High School situated in Howick, KZN. This ensures easy access for all participants as well and avoiding the hassle of traveling to different venues each day.

Participants have the option of entering the full 3 day event or, if time is limited, the 2 day event.
