Trans Augrabies MTB Stage Race

Trans Augrabies MTB Stage Race

One of the largest of South Africa’s “Arid” Parks, Augrabies Falls National Park offers over 50 000ha of dramatic moonscapes, quiver trees, sightings of Fish Eagles, Gemsbok, Giraffe and Springbok through which cyclists will leave their blood, sweat & tears while experiencing so much exhilaration and fun!
It is situated 120km south-west of Upington in the heart of the vast and beautiful Northern Cape, being home to unique riverine eco-systems, as well as one of the world’s largest waterfalls measured by flow of water per second.
The weekend of 23 – 25 June 2018 will see the the forth three day MTB stage race opening up even more of the Kalahari region in and around the Park. You will be cycling in places that tourist cars never reach; through beautiful Orange River Quartz Crystal formations and over the mighty Orange River over a floating bridge.
The route on all three days starts and finishes in the Augrabies Falls National Park.  There is a unique handicap system that allows all riders of the three day stage to compete for the main prize.  Riders can do one, two or all three stages.
