Prestigious Euro Drak Descent hits the trails on 20January

Imagine riding exquisite single track while following the swift and strong flowing Umzimkulu River in the Underberg region. Well this is what the Euro Drak Descent is all about.  The route spans and covers numerous farms in the area and has been made possible by the generous nature of the farm owners who have allowed the riders to pass through unobstructed. The race organisers haven’t looked for the quickest, shortest or easiest route along the river. They have engineered, pioneered and created sections of riding which riders would struggle to experience anywhere else in our country, despite the proliferation of trails, tracks and trail parks happening at the moment.

This is a must on any Mountain Bikers Bucket List. And it all happens on 20 January. Entry is predominantly by invite, but if you can get in, this is an event you do not want to miss. Here is where you can enter.
