 4-day Adventure
9-12 September 2020

A ROUTE UNMATCHED IN DIVERSITY

The “Race With Soul” plunges its participants into a whirlwind adventure, taking riders from the pulsating singletrack of Saasveld into the heart of the Klein Karoo. Each of the 7 days poses a completely unique challenge. With riders summiting the mighty Swartberg Mountain to traversing the arid, desert-like landscapes of the wild Kammanasie.
The event combines world-class hospitality and an electric race village with a mountain biking experience like no other.

“Challenge. Community. Race. Experience. Pain. Party. 
The Cape Pioneer Trek is all those rolled into one.
The best thing is, it’s not only about race time. It’s also the build up, the time of
preparation when you ask yourself, can I make it? And the time after, the time
of the memories, when you know, yes, I did it! Nothing can beat this kind of experience.
That’s why for me, the Cape Pioneer Trek is one of the top mountain
bike races in the world.”

IT’S A RACE LIKE NO OTHER

FROM THE HEART OF THE KAROO COMES THE RACE WITH SOUL

From the arid desertscapes of the Groot Karoo to the great mountains of the Klein Karoo and the aboriginal forests of the Garden Route, the Cape Pioneer has it all, a truly African mountain biking experience. The magic lies in the unique combination of exciting, diverse trails, passionate people and authentic human connection, brought to you by world class event organisers. The result is a race that has achieved near legendary status.
