Are you gents saying this event is worth it? I've been sinking about it.

 

How tough is the long route? Any comparison to Eselfontein?

How tough are the routes compared to, say Nissan Trailseekers? Deciding between the 37 and the 63.

The minute they open registration, I enter... Best race on the calendar.

 

The trails are amazing, views are amazing .. I have done the 37 twice, its a tough little 37. The first time i rode it, i said I'm going back next year to do the 63, i just wanted more of what i just had :-) but knee problems was an issue so i down graded to 37 again.. This year I'm doing 63 and can't wait

Yes. They can chill at start area....there's the usual stands for refreshments....or run around in nature (if they're not riding). Little dam not far away (a few hundred meters). Not too sure what else there is. Last year there was free camping spot at start site with free fire wood and ablutions. Not too sure if this year again.
