AFRiSKi Resort to host Rad new MTB Fest

LESOTHO – 7th SEPTEMBER 2016 - The magnificent AFRiSKi Mountain Resort in Lesotho in the Maluti Mountains, has launched a new 3-night mountain biking festival weekend from the 27th to 30th October called CrankChaos Maluti Mountain Bike Festival.

Located 3050 metres above sea-level, this will be the most rad mountain bike festival of its kind on the African continent, revolutionising the way riders interact with the latest bikes, gear and equipment in the mountain bike industry by bringing together the biggest brand names in mountain biking, allowing guests to test and rate bikes in the field they usually compete in.

Over the 3-day festival, there will be a variety of events, including five downhill lines, an enduro, marathon, slope-style riding, cross-country, downhill eliminator, plus outrides for the more social riders, all possible across the resorts’ extensive trail network.

Riders will also be able to hook up to the T-Bar Lift for a 200-metre vertical climb, and at the top, choose from a myriad of bike tracks to get down the mountain, testing bikes and equipment to their fullest, ripping terrain like pros. 

DHI World Champion, Greg Minnaar, will be there, and says, “CrankChaos is what South African mountain bikers have been missing. Similar festivals happen in only a few countries around the world, and this festival will be in that league. It’s a spectacular location, serious fun with family and friends that cannot be duplicated anywhere else, and in a format I love and endorse. It’s the best way to test brands you have always dreamed about, and ride the Maluti Mountains with spectacular views, whilst having the most fun ever, guaranteed.”

The weekend also offers live entertainment, all meals, great accommodation, and the traditional world-class AFRiSKi hospitality. Unmissable! 

Only 200 guaranteed spots are available so this festival is a must.
