SABIE EXPERIENCE 2013
Friday 13 - Monday 16 December 2013
Those of you who were fortunate enough to participate in the December 2012 SabieX Team Lite and SoloX 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, including free clothing and caps, and free lunches each day, a well organised, great family event to round off your year!
The Miway TV programme during March 2013 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, but this time we are offering an even bigger choice in event format to allow you to decide what to ride, depending on individual fitness and ability.
Those who thought the reduced distances in 2012 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!
In reaction to some pleas from some 2012, Lite riders who are desperate for an extra day in the saddle, and the fact that petrol and related travel costs do not warrant only two days of riding for some teams travelling to the event from afar, here is the new offering from SABIE MTB HEAVEN:
TEAM LITE (Max 60 Teams)
Two participants in a team taking part over 2 days in the Prologue Time Trial (30km) and Stage 2 (45km) - Total distance 75km. No solo riders permitted.
Four categories are offered, including a Family Team. 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.
NEW!!! - TEAM WANNABE (Max 200 Teams)
Two participants in a team taking part over 3 days in the Prologue Time Trial (30km), Stage 2 (45km) and Stage 3 (60km) – Total distance 135km. 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 (30km), Stage 2 (45km), Stage 3 (60km) and Stage 4 (65km) – Total distance 200km. 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.
EARLY BIRD ENTRIES OPEN ON 24 MAY UNTIL 7 JUNE TO GIVE YOU A CHANCE TO SECURE YOUR ENTRY IN A LIMITED FIELD PER FORMAT, AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SOME GREAT DISCOUNTS.
