The North West Province’s most exciting, yet challenging single day mountain bike race, the FNB Magalies Monster Mountain Bike (MTB) Classic will celebrate its 14th anniversary at the ATKV in Buffelspoort on Saturday, 21 May 2016.

Mountain bike enthusiasts can choose between the challenging 75km Magalies Monster, the less daunting but still challenging 35km race, the new 35km School’s Challenge (15 – 18 years of age) or the 15km fun ride. Each distance features the necessary ingredients that an excellent MTB race requires, namely a great setting, spectacular scenery, technically challenging sections, unique trails and a fantastic atmosphere.
