Join us for 2 days of Enduro stage racing on some of the most incredible natural terrain in Eastern Uganda, riding down the flanks of Mt Elgon, the largest freestanding volcanic base in the world. Day 1 sees us session 'mini Utah' around fingers rock and some short but super fun and tech stages. 4 or 5 stages with about 30km of riding. On day 2 we take a shuttle up to 2600m on the edge of Mt Elgon National Park, from here we hit some incredible long descents and ride 4 - 5 stages all the way to the valley floor at 1100m . Two days of incredible riding on natural terrain it some of the most beautiful landscapes on the planet.
