Contego Attakwas Extreme Mountain Bike 121km Challenge & Attakwas Mini 52km Mountain Bike Ride

It is that time of the year again; South Africa’s favourite Extreme MTB race is getting ready to host riders in this, the 2011 edition. The unbelievable growth and success of this event is due to the loyal support from you, the rider, and our committed and generous sponsors and finally a crew that has passion and drive one can only wish for. Once again, and for the third year running, the Attakwas Extreme has been voted SA’s top one-day mountain bike event.

Staying true to our pioneering spirit, and learning from the past 4 years, we have decided to only make small changes to our existing, already challenging extreme route. The changes to the very popular 2010 extreme race include a shortening of sections of the technical jeep track before the entry into the Attakwas kloof and a different approach to Bonniedale guest farm. This will shorten the route by 14 km. The Attakwas Mini, over 55 km that will start and finish in Great Brak river, will share the last 13 km of the Attakwas Extreme route. This shorter ride will consist of plenty of jeep track that takes riders onto the southern slopes of the Outeniqua Mountains.

To enable the supporters and family of the riders from the Extreme race to be able to compete in the Attakwas mini, we have decided to start this shorter version only at 09:30, which gives them ample time to still watch the start of the Extreme race, and then travel to Great Brak river. Don’t underestimate the shorter version of the Atta ; the name still says „Attakwas“.
