With 45km, 25km and 10km races to choose from, riders of all ages and skill levels are catered for and are expected to flock to Lake Eland Game Reserve on 28 September.
Riders will be treated to spectacular open mountain sections as well as beautiful valley and orchard trails, which coupled with game-viewing opportunities, promises to make the Lake Eland Quattro Classic one of the most picturesque and memorable races of the year.
Riders will receive goodie bags and great prizes will be up for grabs, including a two-night stay for two including breakfast at Leopard Walk Lodge situated 20km northeast of Hluhluwe courtesy of Distant Shores Travel Agency.
Oakley, Specialized, Rotor, Powasol and even Cakes Devine have all sponsored excellent prizes.

Late entries will be accepted on the day at an addition fee.
