24/12

mountain bike race

elgin grabouw country club

The inaugural  24/12 takes place at the picturesque Elgin Grabouw Country Cluband has everything you would expect from an endurance event.

Scenic trails, challenge routes, camping, entertainment and one of the best family and team building events in the Cape.

Riders can enter as a solo entrant or in teams of ‘2 or 4’ and can choose between the shorter 12 hour race or the longer 24 hour option.

The person / team with the most laps completed after the 12 hour or 24 hours races have ended wins, and if you want to be the best, sleep is strictly out the question.

The 24 / 12 is open to all skill levels and ages. Single-track and jeep-track sections will keep riders busy throughout the race while camp fires, food trucks and live music will entertain your supporters and fellow riders.
