MTB X is a mountain bike event where you need to traverse, pass through, under or over a series of obstacles with your bicycle. You can either ride over obstacles if you are skilled enough, or shoulder your bike and clamber over them…
MTB X is for the whole family, and is geared towards fun, spectator involvement and family engagement. It is FUN, SAFE and an ADVENTURE for everyone to enjoy.
You can use a mountain bike, a cyclocross bike, a road bike, even a 4 wheeler, as long as it is safe to ride and is human powered and you can carry it over the obstacles with safety.

A 10 km lap that starts on the grass area at Riversands Farm Village, goes past certain key spectator areas and loops back to Riversands Farm Village.
MTB X is aimed at families, amateurs and professionals.
So we try to cater for all participants levels.
There will be a total of 8 obstacles, each designed and built to cater for the diverse entrants.
Obstacles are meant to add a fun element, and create spectator points.
Each obstacle has a “chicken run” for those who prefer to go around rather than over it.
Each obstacle will become a special spot with a variety of music, drinks and even food stalls
