“Another massive thanks to Chris and his team and of course Colin my team mate! This is the beginning of what I truly hope will become an enduring event, but one that will remain an exclusive tour that will attract the types of riders who honestly do ride for the fun of it, but who at the same time know how to merge competitiveness and exploration. An event that will “ride” a fine line between extreme and manageable, aimed at those MTBer’s who know what it is to hike- a- bike and somehow find enjoyment at the end of the day, reminiscing about the days toil over a beer in the evenings.”
“ Why would I go back to the Lesotho Sky race…it is at high altitude (I am from Knysna), lots of climbs, rural Lesotho, far to travel for me and there are many races going on at the same time? Why would I tell all my friends and encourage them to go?
Because….., it is a fantastic race, a soul enhancing experience, true beauty with a difference that no other race have given me. To be welcomed by the Lesotho people are a humbling experience and I went away with a treasure of new friends.
The organization, the accommodation and the food were fantastic! Thanks to Christian, Darol and the rest of the crew for putting on such an unique race.
