Enter joberg2c 2020

Entries open mid June

joberg2c is probably the best 9 day stage race in the world mainly because it is the only 9 stage race in the world. It crosses four provinces of South Africa in nine days, with a distance of nine-hundred kilometres. joberg2c is not for the feint hearted. You will be pushed to your limits – crossing some of the most spectacular South African landscapes and traversing through private farms from Heidelberg to Scottburgh. You wouldn’t miss it for the world, right? Enter before its too late.

Our 2020 vision: more trails, more wors, more communities, more South African and more of the same great spirit that makes this ride totally unique.
