First Quantum Minerals 1Zambia MTB Race

The FQM 1Zambia MTB is one wild African mountain bike stage race.  Riders navigate 250km of scenic terrain while passing through rolling hills, ancient brachystegia forests and crystal clear streams for a magnificent finish on the mighty Zambezi River.  The route is brimming with unexplored routes in the African bush and a chance to appreciate nature in absolute solitude.  Added all together, the FQM 1Zambia MTB is definitely a unique experience in the African mountain bike scene.

Teams of 2 take on a 3 day mountain bike stage race following hilly village footpaths and remote escarpment jeep tracks via GPS through rural tribal bushland for a truly African finish on the banks of the Zambezi River. We are targeting all mountain bike enthusiasts with a taste for fresh adventure and the unknown!
