The Sappi Howick Classic is our highlight of the year. It is the oldest race on the KZN Mountain Bike calendar and one not to be missed. The race is broken down into 2 events - the 40km Classic and the 20km intermediate. Don't let the 40km distance fool you....this is a very tough event and is often described by participants as one of the more challenging they have ever ridden!
In 2016 the Sappi Howick Classic introduced an Enduro event which takes place the day before the Classic event. This event has been included as a KZN MTB Enduro Series event. A trail run has also been included from 2018.
2 March 2019 - Trail Run (morning) and Enduro (afternoon)
3 March 2019 - 20km and 40km MTB
Dont miss South Africa's original and FIRST Mountain Bike event that was ever established! After 30 years of passionate trail building by the Howick Mountain Bike Club we boast some of the most technically challenging and tough singletrack in the Country. This is RAW and UNPLUGGED Mountain Biking at its best!
Entries are administered through www.roag.co.za and will open approx. 6 weeks prior to the event
