Lesotho Sky 2018 route

The all new route comes as part of a new direction for the event as a whole. We will base ourselves around our home in the mountains at Roma Trading Post Lodge and for the 8th year in a row at Malealea Lodge. Riders can look forward to more comfort, less hassle, better service and most of all some amazing riding which like every year is the best we have put together yet.

For those of you who missed out on the two new stages we introduced in 2017, but had to cancel or shorten due to weather, we’ve got good news. Both stages will feature this year.

In Lesotho there is no hiding from the mountains, you have to work for your enjoyment. The good news is that for each tough climb, a brilliant downhill awaits.

This year’s route will again confirm what we here in Lesotho know as a fact: There is no better place to ride a mountain bike than in the original #MountainBikeKingdom.
