PUREBRED ARABIAN HORSES, BRILLIANT LIVE MUSIC, FADING KAROO LIGHT AND A MTB NIGHT STAGE READY TO GO.

This is the scene at the start of the annual limited-entry Lormar MTB Tour – a unique three-day mountain bike experience in the heart of the Karoo from Fairview farm to Nieu Bethesda and back. 
In 1965 an Arabian thoroughbred named Lorraine of Kismet Riding Stud won the grueling 127 mile horse marathon between Hanover, De Aar and Richmond in the semi-desert Karoo; hence the name Lormar. Today this tradition is shared on this farm on mountain bikes through the heart of the remote Compasberg region.
