What's Happening



24/25 September 2022

Welcome to the 10th edition of one of the best family fun and team building mountain bike events in South-Africa!
Participants camp on Van Gaalen Cheese Farm and for 24 hours ride either as individuals or in teams of 2, 4 or 6 - 8 riders. The individual or team that completes the greatest number of laps in their category will be the winner.  Historically there has always been a 6 Hour solo event as well, but this year we are upping the ante and replacing it with a 12 Hour solo race in celebration of the 10th anniversary of this popular event on the racing calendar!
