Lesotho Sky

Location: Roma Trading Post, Lesotho

Date: 24 September 2018 - 29 September 2018


The Lesotho Sky 2018 Race is a UCI class 1 MTB stage race. It covers more than 350kms over six days on raw, natural mountain trails that will take you to edge of MTB Nirvana.

The race is limited to only 100 riders. We keep it intentionally small due to the limited resources of the local communities. We are highly committed to our local Lesotho context. Mountain biking in Lesotho is growing as a sport and we love playing a role in this. Although the race vibe is lighthearted, the race is definitely not for the fainthearted. We do not build little bridges or manicure trails. All the riding is done on real mountain trails made by rural life in Africa and mother nature. This is as close as you will get to a real mountain bike race.

Be warned, it’s tougher than you think. But a race that will stay on your MTB bucket list long after you’ve crossed the finish line.
