3 Day Stage Event Route Description 


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.

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

ELEVATION GAIN:1400m

SINGLE TRACK: 30km

WATER POINTS: 3, Self-help at 10km, 23km and 36km


DAY 3

We go up to the Bo Swaarmoed area. It is situated close to the famous 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

DISTANCE: 39km

ELEVATION GAIN:   968m

WATER POINTS: 1 Self-help at 15km and 22km
