MORE INFO:

A unique MTB event in many ways! It is possibly one of the hardest and most beautiful mountain biking events in South Africa. It is an iconic event that transports riders from the South African foothills of the Drakensberg to the very summit of the legendary Sani Pass in Lesotho. The ultimate test of a climber’s ability it is also a gateway to some of the most spectacular scenery one can experience on a mountain bike.

2014 sees a change of season for the race with it moving to mid-winter, if you don’t make it to the top it may not be due to lack of effort, it may be due to snow! While undoubtedly a tough test of the legs and lungs it is by no means beyond the capabilities of your average rider and presents a unique opportunity to join a select club of climbers.

This is the one chance to ride up the Sani Pass with no passport required as the SA Border is open to all Epic riders!

Entries are limited so don’t miss this opportunity to scratch this singular race off your bucket list.
