Lesotho Sky 2017

 2 – 7 October

An African mountain bike stage race in the heart of Lesotho, the Mountain Kingdom. The Lesotho Sky 2017 is old school MTB at it’s best. It’s a mountain biker’s ride of passage.

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.


This year, we are launching a brand new route that will blow your mind! The 392 km of real mountain trails and 9880m elevation will bring out the best in your bike and make you fall in love with mountain biking all over again.


This race reflects the very fibre of life in this beautiful country. Nothing about the Lesotho Sky is manicured and we don’t build little bridges. It’s a brutally honest race in the company of people who loves nothing but the joy of riding a mountain bike.

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.
