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…
