1Zed Explore - 2019
Sat 1 Jun 2019 @ Lusaka, Lusaka

Flying Eagle Events Ltd


The 1Zambia MTB race has become the highlight of the MTB calendar in Zambia, and the 6th edition will maintain all the features that make this race unique. Riders now have the chance to get a feel for the event by participating in the 1Zed Explore 70km on Saturday.  It's the same GPS navigation format covering the least demanding stage of the event - The Nankanga Tour.

FORMAT - 1Zed Explore - Stage 2

Teams of 2 - 4 take on Stage 2 of the 1Zambia MTB which is a really fun route with long flowing descents (and +/- 950m of climbing of course) taking riders on a wide loop into some of the best MTB trails Lusaka has to offer.  
Start / Finish at Lilayi Lodge, Lusaka.
We are targeting all mountain bike enthusiasts local in Zambia looking for a taste of the 1Zambia experience without the commitment of completing all three stages.
