So much new growth, development and excitement is in the air in the small town of Underberg, nestled in the Southern Drakensberg, and starting point to many adventures into Lesotho and the World Heritage Site, the Ukhahlamba Drakensberg Park.
Did you know? The rock art of the Drakensberg is the largest and most concentrated group of rock paintings in Africa south of the Sahara and is outstanding both in quality and diversity of subject
On our side we are thrilled to announce the launch of our brand new websites for both our events.
We are planning some new route options for both races, but more significantly are hard at work mapping the route with our new partner Tiger Wheel and Tyre – we’re super excited to have another major brand being part of our events. Their partnership will result in the routes being GPS mapped which will add to your experience come race day. The GPS files will be available for download on the website. Please remember that the full route is only open during the race as we traverse farmers land which are part of our Sani Spoors network of trails.
Talking of Sani Spoors, we are thrilled to be able to bring you those route mapped as well and will be available from our website, which is also undergoing a facelift – so, lots is happening here in Underberg.
Officially, our entries are open and you can enter here directly:
Have you booked your accommodation yet?
Consider the camping option at Glencairn which will be available to all our entrants, where the registration is and the start of Day 2 of the Drak Descent. Hot showers, clean toilets from the world class and renowned Farmer Glen of Sani2C fame! Yes, we share the same start venue and look forward to growing that relationship with Farmer Glen and his family, who have done so much for mountain biking in the area.
You can book your campsite directly through them firstname.lastname@example.org
We’ll be adding some new and exciting options for supporters, friends and family of entrants into the race such as discounted trips up Sani Pass, along with some fun family activity ideas. So look out for our next newsletter for that information.
For now, get entered, get training and get those wheels rolling and those shoes running.
See you all out on the trails.
The Sani Spoors Team
