Mauritius Tour Beachcomber (MTB)

Mauritius is a small island set in the enticing tropical zone of the Southwest Indian Ocean. Its beautiful beaches and lagoons, lush interior, cosmopolitan and friendly population as well as its stunning landscapes seduce those visitors who sooner or later decide to return to the island.

Connected daily to Europe, Asia and Africa by several airlines, this modern and safe country boasts of a diversified economy based partly on tourism – for which it has built a worldwide reputation.

The Mauritius Tour Beachcomber (MTB) is a unique mountain bike stage race by the leading Mauritian hospitality group, Beachcomber, and its expert partners. It creates an unparalleled opportunity to get the best vibes of Mauritius while riding across wild and very varied terrain, from mountains, forests, sugar cane and tea fields to beaches and atop cliffs.

From 17 to 19 May 2018, expert mountain bikers and nature lovers alike will be able to enjoy a real sports challenge in rarely accessible spots of Mauritius, as well as an attractive accommodation offer in a 5-star beach resort.

Thanks to MTB, Beachcomber hotels is adding another challenge-and-fun packed event to its offering in sports and ecotourism. Our team has successfully organised the first four editions of the Ultra Trail Raidlight Beachcomber (UTRB) in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017, which attracted leading global and regional champions in trail running. This expertise is the foundation for putting up a new edition of the UTRB in 2018 and to organize a second, adrenaline-packed edition of the MTB – with partners specialized in mountain biking for preparing the courses and for technical supervision.
