Unfortunately due to the uncertainty in the country we have cancelled the 2020 Bezhoek Extreme.

2021 Bezhoek Extreme will be bigger and better!


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

This is a toughy, There are not many free kilometers. If you can finish The Bezhoek Extreme you have done well. This event should be on the bucket list for every serious mountain biker. The organising, the hospitality, the routes and support are superb. - Theresa Ralph: Team Galileo Risk
