SABIE EXPERIENCE 2014
Saturday 13 - Tuesday 16 December 2014
Those of you who were fortunate enough to participate in the December 2013 Sabie Xperience can only attest to a fantastic, fun-filled event.
Everyone was able to get a taste of prime mountain-biking over sublime trails in great weather conditions, in MTB heaven with endless single tracks.
Great Goody Bags and free lunches each day, a well organised, great family event to round off your year!
The Supersport TV programme during January 2014 shows it all, from the "Woosies" who chickened out at the Eagle Run on the Prologue, to the "Race Snakes" and single speed freaks who ate up the mountains with relish. Well done to you all! You are all heroes in our eyes and the organising team enjoyed it as much as you did.
Sabie Xperience wants you all to come back this December with your cycling buddies to Xperience it again.
Those who thought the routes in 2013 were going to be a "walk in the park" were surprised by the intensity of the climbs and technicality of the trails, commenting that they had seldom found a diversity in trails anywhere else in South Africa. No boring endless district roads, and great refreshment stations every 15 to 20km!
TEAM LITE (Max 100 Teams)
Two participants in a team taking part over 2 days in the Prologue Time Trial (32km) and Stage 2 (48km) - Total distance 80km. No solo riders permitted.
Three categories are offered. Rider minimum age is 15 years. This the perfect distance for racing teens and beginner MTB stage racers to get the feel of multi-day racing before stepping up to the real thing.
TEAM WANNABE (Max 100 Teams)
Two participants in a team taking part over 3 days in the Prologue Time Trial (32km), Stage 2 (48km) and Stage 3 (60km) – Total distance 140km. No solo riders permitted.
Six categories are offered, including one for Tandems. Rider minimum age is 17 years. This is designed for the intermediate riders who have a competitive streak, or just love to enjoy the outdoor environment.
SoloX (Max 350 Individual Riders only)
This is ideal for fit and accomplished Solo participants who want to race against their buddies over 4 days in a Prologue Time Trial (32km), Stage 2 (48km), Stage 3 (75km) and Stage 4 (65km) – Total distance 220km. Sorry! No teams – but you can always podium together with your buddy/partner! Eight categories are offered, including one for the crazy Single Speeders who forgot their gears at home. Minimum rider age is 19 years.
As usual, all categories will have generous cash prizes per day and for General Classification on the final day for those who take to the podium to celebrate their efforts.
