The Laikipia XC is a six-day mountain bike stage race that will take place in the vast wilderness of Central Kenya from 7 to 12 July 2014. Riders will experience the region’s breath-taking scenery, a variety of ancient cultures and a once in a lifetime opportunity to dominate some world-class mountain biking trails.
The route covers approximately 500km over 6 days and about 10,000m of climbing. It runs through the foothills of Mount Kenya (Africa’s second highest mountain), up into the stunning scenery of Laikipia and finally into and around Mukogodo Forest, all straddling the incredible East African Rift Valley. Famed for its spectacular views and diverse terrain, the race snakes its way through steep, rocky singletrack, open savannah and virgin forests that border the legendary Ewaso Nyiro river.
