MMM MTB Race: 25 – 27 April 2014

MMM-JPGGreat Karoo, Small Karoo, Mountains and Beach. Chain Gang Events has managed to incorporate all of them in a 3-day stage mountain bike ride, namely the MMM MTB Race.

The race will start in the historic town of Laingsburg and will follow a route via Prince Albert, Oudtshoorn and the finish in Sedgefield. Excellent jeep and gravel tracks to test endurance and not so much technical MTB ability will be the order of the day and will incorporate the hospitality of the locals from the region.

    Any idea what the morning starting times would be – will help with deciding how far out to stay if we have alternative accommodation?

      Hi Burger, we will start on the 1st day at 8am (120km on 1st day), as although it is an easy ride, it will still take some time for the non-racers. On day two and three we will start at 7am, or as close as possible to it. Regards. Juan

    hi, i emailed to ask about how to get home from the finish (i.e. car moving?) but had no reply.

      Hi Leona, please email to . I mentioned to Lourens, who had a similar question, that we will have an option of transport from the finish to the start the day before the race (will make info about booking etc available as soon as I receive the quote) and I also approached a primary school that might do the a “driver assist” service from Laingsburg as a fund-raiser, but that still needs to be confirmed and I will also make that information available as soon as I have it. Regards. Juan
