    Default Lesotho Sky

    Has anybody done this race before ? Some feedback from somebody that has actually done it will be helpful.

    Entries are now open for the 2014 race. The dates are 21 - 26 September 2014.

    The company I work for are currently doing a project for the Lesotho government. Most of us do some mtb riding in our spare time.

    There is some "pressure" from the Lesotho government for us to enter some teams, but the powers that be in our company don't want to come to the party with a sponsorship.

    I've heard only good feedback on the race and it looks awesome. It is definitely on my wish list for next year! I don't think it will be an easy race and I expect quite a bit of technical terrain and altitude playing a role. But that sounds like fun to me!

    Let me know if you're looking for riders...

    It is a big thing for the Lesotho government. The organisers aim to use the race to showcase Lesotho and to give something back to the community.

    From what I understand, some of the waterpoints/checkpoints are actually inside local shops in villages, and there is a corporate event held at the Maseru mall.

    Previous races restricted the field to 100 riders. I am working hard to get our company to sponsor a few teams. No luck yet, but it is still early days. Will keep you posted.
