The 14th edition of the Momentum Health Attakwas Extreme presented by Biogen – SA’s toughest one-day MTB race – takes place in the heart of the Klein Karoo. The iconic event offers an extreme 121km route with 2900m of vertical ascent, with the Attakwas Half – a 52km race with 1100m of vertical ascent for the less adventurous. The flagship event also allows pro riders to set an early-season marker as the first stop on the UCI MTB Marathon Series calendar while offering a chance to collect valuable UCI points, and this year will also serve as valuable preparation for the looming 2020 Olympic Games.
