MTB X has grown out of the popularity of mountain biking in South Africa, as well as the ever expanding trail running and obstacle racing events that take place all over the country.
In essence it is a mountain bike event where you need to traverse, pass through, under or over a series of obstacles with your bicycle.
You can either ride over obstacles if you are skilled enough, or shoulder your bike and clamber over them…
MTB X is for the whole family, and is geared towards fun, spectator involvement and family engagement. It is FUN, SAFE and an ADVENTURE for everyone to enjoy!!
You can use a standard mountain bike, a cyclocross bike, a road bike, even a 4 wheeler, as long as it is safe to ride and is human powered and you can carry it over the obstacles with safety…..
