Sat 24 Sep - Sun 25 Sep 2022 @ Madibeng, North West

Van Gaalen Trails

Welcome to the 10th edition of one of the best family fun and team building mountain bike events in South-Africa!

Participants camp on Van Gaalen Cheese Farm and for 24 hours ride either as individuals or in teams of 2, 4 or 6 - 8 riders. The individual or team that completes the greatest number of laps in their category will be the winner.  Historically there has always been a 6 Hour solo event as well, but this year we are upping the ante and replacing it with a 12 Hour solo race in celebration of the 10th anniversary of this popular event on the racing calendar!

Those who are more into running than cycling can again enter the 6 Hour Trail RUN – walkers are also welcome!  

Race Information:

Come join one of the most interactive and social MTB events of the year!

The 24 Hour @ Van Gaalen MTB race consists of a 12km lap.  Riders compete around the clock to ride as many laps as possible within 24 hours (or alternatively within 12 hours). Whether you are an experienced rider or a novice, this event is designed to accommodate all with its social, flowing route!
