“Do the Descent Thing”
An easy amble along the banks of the Umzimkulu River, suitable for novices and children.
Not much climbing on this trail as it starts with 5 – 8km of the beautiful flowing trails right next to the river.
This is the most exciting and technical of all the trails with a little bit of climbing thrown in.
At the heart of Sani Spoors is a bunch of local farmers who are passionate about mountain biking and about the beautiful area that they live in. They want locals and riders from all over the country to be able to come, experience, share and enjoy what they have here in the Underberg area.Find out more about how Sani Spoors started, on-site facilities and the activities available.

The Spoors Team has completed the preparation for what is surely one of SA’s most spectacular MTB and Trail Run races. The single tracks are sure to challenge and thrill the most widely travelled cyclist and runner. Whilst the distances of the days are not huge, the single track will traverse terrain that is spectacular and challenging! You are guaranteed to feel a sense of accomplishment when you reach the finish!
The Euro Steel Drak Descent has reached the 450-rider cap and entries are now closed.
The shorter MTB Challenge and two Trail Runs still have entries available and can be entered online until Wednesday, or at registration on Friday or on the day.
Our principal sponsors, Euro Steel have been absolutely amazing in their support of this event and thus mountain biking in general in our area. We as the Sani Spoors team and the Euro Steel organising committee would really like again to thank Colin and David Wilson and their team for assisting us in making this event a possibility.
