BEZHOEK EXTREME MTB FESTIVAL 2018
Event Date: 1-3 June 2018

Tough took on a new meaning at the Bezhoek Extreme MTB Festival 2018

The race that lived up to its name. That’s pretty much how most riders summed up the inaugural Bezhoek Extreme MTB Festival 2018. The event featured trails that have never been ridden before and views that only a few dozen people have ever experienced, it was truly a magnificent experience.

Featuring 3 days of riding across a variety of distances, there was something for everyone en route, and for spectators, the race village catered to all their needs. Set on the banks of the Olifants River, the aptly named Olifants River Lodge hosted riders and supporters for the weekend. With loads to do while the riders hit the trails, there certainly were no bored supporters.

Congratulations to all the riders who tackled and concurred this race of races. We’ll be back in 2019 for an even better Bezhoek Extreme MTB Festival.
