An African mountain bike stage race in the heart of Lesotho, the Mountain Kingdom. This is old school MTB at it’s best. Breaking bucket lists since 2011. We don’t build little bridges or roll away rocks. If you are looking for something manicured, go to a spa. This is a ride of passage.

2 – 7 October 2017


If you are passionate about mountain biking in Africa then the Lesotho Sky is your Ride of Passage. With 392 km of real mountain trails and 9880m elevation, there is no better place to ride a mountain bike than in the original #MountainBikeKingdom.

There will be some significant changes to the 2017 route. What started in 2011 with a handful of passionate mountain bikers grew into one of Africa’s most spectacular and toughest stage races. The race attracts riders from all over the world, with the 2016 race hosting people from 11 nations.

Our bikes handled the Lesotho rocks really well. It is such a stunning event. I can recommend it to anyone, it’s a definite bucket-list race. – Mariske Strauss.
