Welcome to the Drak MTB Xperience website!
This mountain biking and trail running experience is geared toward a relaxed and fun event for the whole family. It will also provide a very scenic but testing challenge for the experienced rider.
Sunday 6th March 2011 will offer fully administered ROAG riding and running events and will be a true and exciting test of mountain biking – with distance and skill levels to suite your choice. The 40km Classic covers some excellent forest, plateau and river single track and has some relatively technical and rocky sections. Part of the race route includes sections of the Sani Spoors permanent trails ( see www.sanispoors.com) so is nicely maintained and worn in. The 20km Intermediate and Fun rides will be more sedate and gentle (but there are still some testing hills and sections!) and the ride for the kids will be on and around the golf course – with some nice little obstacles to make them feel part of the fun! The trail run courses will be the same as for the Intermediate and Fun rides.
Please see the Race Details page for more information on the rides available and for your Entry options.
Pre-entry and online payment is via the ROAG website (www.roag.co.za) - with a premium payable for on the day entries.
With the Xperience taking place in such a picturesque setting, at the very feet of the Southern Drakensberg mountains, and with the area offering so much for the whole family to see and do, why not make it a family weekend to Xperience and remember? It will be an event that you will want to tell your friends about – and definitely to put in your riding/run calendar for next year.
Brandon Stewart rode and won our race last year and said it was “one of the best courses I have ridden”.
