An African mountain bike stage race in the heart of Lesotho, the Mountain Kingdom. For the 100 riders lucky enough to experience this amazing event, it is a ride of passage.  

Even if you do it more than once, it will stay on your bucket list forever. 


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.
