Thirsti Extreme 130km Race

The 28th April 2017 marks the date for the inaugural Thirsti Extreme Solo Stage race.

Thirsti Natural Spring Water is water with a difference. It is sourced from deep within the Drakensberg, naturally filtered to keep the exact taste that nature intended. We are very excited to be hosting the Thirsti Extreme Solo Stage race on our property which sits in the rolling foothills of the Northern Drakensberg.

We at Thirsti believe strongly in the benefits of an active lifestyle and a healthy diet. As such we are thrilled to be associated with mountain biking in South Africa.

The THIRSTI EXTREME race will focus on the best SOLO riders over 3 days with a big money purse for the overall winners. The race will see men and women starting separately to ensure that all genders have a fair chance at competing for the win.
3 days – 225 km – 4537m ascent

Thirsti would like to be associated with the professional riders of the future. We have decided to offer very attractive prize money to our junior riders, Boys and Girls. The THIRSTI Junior Extreme 130 caters for some tough riding with 2 categories for the u/15-16 and u/17-18.
3 days – 130km – 2600m ascent

For the Weekend Warriors we have the THIRSTI Extreme 130 race which will follow the same route as the Thirsti Junior Extreme 130 race.
3 days – 130 km – 2600m ascent
