Our purpose, driven by the commitment to achieve an extraordinary event, is twofold:
To responsibly organise a multi-day, paired mountain bike event that attracts the interest of both local and international competitors. We aim to bring the challenge of this multi-disciplined event within reasonable reach of all levels of athlete.
Through associated sponsorship and media interest, we aim to promote tourism and conservation of this area to the benefit of its people. By co-involvement of the local communities, we strive toward improved awareness of the natural assets of the area and a resultant interest in its preservation. Some of the other important objectives of the event are raising funds for community education and creating an awareness of the tourism potential of this magnificent region, thereby opening job opportunities and educating the residents about the importance of retaining the natural beauty of the area, and the various conservation issues around this.
