Eselfontein MTB Festival

Eselfontein MTG Stage Race

Eselfontein MTB Festival. Our MTB Festival for 2024 will be on the 18-20 October 2024. This MTB trail is up to date the top MTB trial because of its design, amount of single tracks and year-round marketing. The track is about 65 km and calls for a high level of fitness and handling skills. Shorter trials are also available.

Day 1. This 30km will be a day-night 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.

Day 2 of the Eselfontein MTB Festival is 55km. 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 counterbalancing 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.

DAY 3. We go up to the Bo Swaarmoed area. It is situated close to the infamous Matroosberg mountain. Most of your climbing will be done in the first 15 km before starting with a single track which is mostly downhill all the way to the finish. 39km in total with 968m of elevation.
