Our aim is to offer the opportunity to experience the “Fun Of Mountain Biking” through the 3 basic mountain bike riding elements (Body, Bike, Skills) in an exhilarating and adventurous manner.
There are various mountain bike sport disciplines of which the cross-country marathon (XCM) discipline is currently, contrary to the rest of the world, the most popular discipline in South Africa. The only mountain bike discipline hosted as an Olympic discipline, and globally the most popular mountain bike discipline, is cross-country Olympic (XCO). Of all mountain bike disciplines, XCO offers the most fun and consist of lap racing around a short circuit containing various obstacles that must be negotiated. Apart from physical fitness, XCO also requires bike handling skills not required within XCM, and also a well maintained mountain bike. The level of technical skills required for XCO is the primary reason why most mountain bikers perceive XCO as “too difficult”! XCO is a means-to-an-end to address all 3 basic elements of mountain bike riding, ensuring you get the most from your mountain bike!
