This event has been postponed until 2017 due to the minimal entries received for the 2016 event..
The Hogsback Lord of the Chain Rings MTB is a 3 day stage race with each day’s stage starting and finishing in Hogsback. 2016 will be its 5th year!
Riders will endure approximately 200km of varied terrain: forested single track, cattle track, jeep track and varied farm roads as they make their way to the finish line.
Our strategy is to provide a challenging, yet achievable stage range, where cyclist’s individual needs are of the utmost priority. Our cyclists need to feel that they have experienced true Eastern Cape Hospitality and a varied riding experience that only the Eastern Cape can offer. Riders will also notice our strong commitment to the communities along the way as well as the high-level of involvement and hospitality from the local community.
And to all those "old school" riders who say that medals and trophies are over-rated because they have acumulated so many over the years: The finishers medals and trophies custom and hand made for this event will surely be whipped out and displayed at many family gatherings for show-and-tell! You will have to see them and feel them, to believe them!
