mountain bike CHALLENGE

22nd - 23rd

MAY '21

The inaugural  24/12 takes place at the picturesque Wellington area and has everything you would expect from an endurance event. Scenic trails, challenge routes, camping, entertainment and one of the best family and team building MTB events in the Cape.

Riders can enter as a solo entrant or in teams of ‘2 or 4’ and with 4 race options to choose from, there is something for everybody. Day riders can enter the quick 3 Hour option or a slightly longer 6 Hour race. For those keen on pushing themselves, enter either the 12 Hour challenge or go all in with the full 24 Hour race.


The person / team with the most laps completed in either of the 4 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.
