York Enduro MTB
14 September 2017
An exclusive Mountain Bike event based around the popular Enduro style of mountain bike racing. Each 4-rider team entering will get a pro rider to ride with, and form a 5-man/woman corporate team. The four day event is not a standard stage race, but something totally different with multi discipline stages. You are guaranteed fun and an awesome event with York’s hospitality at its best. Entries are limited to 30 teams.

Bestmed Jock Cycle Tour
15 to 17 September 2017
The arduous Jock Tour 3-Day event, presented by Rudy Project, over 304 km and a daunting 7,200 metres of vertical ascent. Entries limited to 500 riders.

The existing one-day Jock, which is an official premier seeding event for the Cape Town Cycle Tour, keeps its name as the Bestmed Jock Classique while its 3-day big brother is known as the Bestmed Jock Tour.

The Tour is not a challenge for the average rider. It constitutes the first event in South Africa which is mirrored on the Classic European Alpine road race stage races, such as the Haute Route. There is no tougher 3-day challenge on a road bike anywhere else on the African continent.

Teams are required to complete as many laps as possible around a 7,5km course of lovely flat Jeep track and single track. The race starts at 12 noon and includes 3 hours of scary night riding.

Roundtable Tube Race
The Sabie Roundtable Tube Race during the first weekend of February has become an annual feature on calendars across Southern Africa.

York Rally
National Championship Motor Car Rally. Death-defying day and night stages on the narrow, winding forestry roads.  Excellent and free spectator value provided by the heroic masters of cross-country motor racing.

Mountain Bike Races
A number of National & Provincial Mountain Bike championships and other races are hosted by the Mpumalanga Mountain Bike Association (MaMBA) throughout the year.
