MTB on the edge, Simien Mountains, Ethiopia

Ibex Explore

Ibex Explore is a MTB race for pioneers

With our next event, the Explore Edition, we offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be among the First Explorers and thus First Finishers of the Ibex Explore.

Our challenge has been thoroughly prepared earlier this year. We have a team ready to accommodate you and our tracks on GPS are waiting for pioneers.

We will limit the amount of participants to 60.
This makes our challenge very personal and will facilitate encounters with communities in very rural areas in Ethiopia. All participants will get the chance to get to know one another.
