Eselfontein MTB Festival

OUR MTB FESTIVAL FOR 2022 WIL BE HELP ON 14-16 OCTOBER.

SAFE THE DATE !!

3 Day Stage Event Route Description 

DAY 1

This 30km will be a day ight ride starting at 6pm so the correct lights will be required. We expect the average rider to do the last 15km in the dark. This section of track has been part of our normal night race of the festival over the past few years and has a total elevation gain of 690m. It will be a bunch start but will have plenty of passing opportunities. The results from Day 1 will be used to seed the riders for the next day which will be a 55km race with approx. 30km single track.

DISTACE:30km

ELEVATION GAIN: 690 m

WATER PONTS: 1, Self-help at 17.5km

 

DAY 2

This will be the ride of your life with a single track combination that will blow your mind and give you an all-over body workout from counter balancing your bike. The route is a combination of our trails that are open throughout the year that will include two famous climbs, “Death Drop” and “Dead Man Walking”. The last 25km will have no big climbs.

DISTANCE:55km
