Hard? Yes! Rewarding? Most Definitely! The Bezhoek Extreme 2020 will once again offer mountain bikers one of the most challenging but most rewarding rides of their lives.

The single track is technical but fast, the climbs are brutal and the descents are steep. It is beautiful and it is amazingly rewarding. The Bezhoek Extreme is a benchmark. Enter now for the ride of your life.
I haven’t been so completely challenged on a mountain bike since the early 1990s when our bikes were simple and race routes were rugged. Two days later and my shoulder, neck, back and leg muscles are still aching from the intensity of the effort. We need more events with routes like this. Kudos to everyone involved in the Bezhoek Extreme MTB Challenge for investing in good old fashioned ‘tough’. Congrats to all that finished! The organisation was superb. I will be back next year for certain! - Sean Badenhorst: Mountain biker | Skills Instructor | Co-founder of TREAD media
It is a tough challenge which will test your limits in all aspects of riding a mountain bike - exactly what the event aims to do and on which its reputation will be built. Underestimate it at your own peril, but complete it and you will be profoundly satisfied. I am pretty certain that every competitor ran out of gas at some point but the well stocked waterpoints and the lure of the race village at Olifant’s Rivier Lodge replete with passionate race organizers’ hospitality spurred everyone on to finish stage 1. - Ben Melt Swanepoel: Team Garmin MTB
