For 15 years the Sabie Classic has become the benchmark Enduro Mountain Bike race by which all others are judged. Over 3000 riders will descend upon the small Lowveld town to experience South Africa’s “Mecca” of mountain biking over the two days. All of the country’s top riders who appeared for the race as SA Champs last year, will be lured by the large winning purse, the UCI points as well as the legendary challenge that Sabie possesses.

MTN, NISSAN and the organizers are ensuring that not only will the riders experience the best Mountain Biking in Africa, but their families will enjoy the whole weekend with a dedicated kids area with face painting and games as well as a race restaurant for all to fill up on. A 2km race for really small kids will guarantee that all ages are catered for… This year there are more reasons than ever for anyone who has a yearning to experience the thrill, fun and camaraderie that Sabie has always offered, bring the whole family for a weekend away and escape into the forests to experience the breathtaking scenery and mind blowing trails that is the Sabie Classic, it’s what your Mountain Bike was made for…

The Friday night registration will, as always, provide lots of entertainment for the whole family with food, music, product stalls, Xtreme Sports shop, product displays and lots to sample.

Included in the entry fee, is access for the rider and supporters that can enter the York Timbers Sports grounds free of charge. Secure parking for teams is available on the Venue. The public will park outside the designated areas.

    As my first race/MTB event ever, it was an honour to be a part of such an amazing, life changing experience. The 74km was *very* tough for me at my level, but absolutely mind-blowing. I will definitely partake next year. Very well organised, 5 stars.

    This was my first MTB Race, and I found it very well organised.
    Routs were laid out thoughtfully. You can see that the years of experience have paid off.
    It was fantastic, and I can’t wait for the next one!

    Definitely worth 5 Stars!!

    I think more should have been done to allow the race to be de toured when such exesive rain is around . The 75 km was a mess and could put some people off MTB for life . Let alone the damage to bikes ect….
    45 km was great and worth doing ….muddy but rideable …
