10 Epic Mountain Bike Races You Can Enter

Trek across mountain ranges, continents or entire islands and test yourself against the best!

When: December 12 – 13 2014

Where: Namib Desert, Namibia

In the words of the race organisers ‘you can win it, but you can’t beat it.’ If you make it to the end we reckon you’ll agree. Riders race for 24 hours straight in the blazing Namibian sun along the 370km long course – it’s one that separates the wheat from the chaff.

In between gasps for breath you’ll be able to enjoy incredible scenery and local wildlife including kudu and springboks. The race takes place over a single day and so you’ll get to see the sunset and rise over the Namib desert before making your way down to the more gentle coast.
