The Madibaz Mountain Bike XCO Series 2019 is again proudly hosted by the Nelson Mandela University and support from Ridelife George, Giant South Africa, Tippeton and Chain Gang Events. The aim of the series is to promote the development of MTB XCO racing and, in general, support healthy lifestyle options for the Eden region cycling community. The series is people centred and built on a drive for excellence and respect for the environment. Our XCO tracks are carefully developed to cater for novice riders, but at the same time, challenge the more experienced racing snakes. We will also have one event hosted at a different venue (Oakhills - Knysna) to add a bit of flavour, as well as extend the reach of the series to new riders. Each race, named after and indigenous animal species of the region, will see fierce competition, camaraderie, suffering, fear conquering and elation from when the countdown starts until the last rider crosses the finish line. The series will consist of four events of which the best three will count towards a log point score, determining the series champions as well as Eden XCO Colours recipients. Come and join us for a real Madibaz XCO experience in the heart of mountain biking country at Nelson Mandela University George Campus in the Southern Cape.
