"The terrain and scenery was remarkable. I'm already looking forward to 2017! Ill be back!" Max Knox
"It is one of the most beautifully organized races ever. Thought has gone in to taking the scenic route which is tough yet visually rewarding. Not often do you get to ride in the mountains and forests and then finish on the beach." Dylan Rebello, 2015 Mens MTB Marathon Winner
"The Indigenous forests take you into another world, testing climbs and some challenging technical sections...I can think of no better way than by MTB with an idyllic beachfront finish on central beach in Plettenberg bay." Robyn De Groot , 2015 Womens MTB Marathon Winner
"It has been said, this is possibly the best one day ride in the country." Kevin Evans
