The 2020 Momentum Medical Scheme Tankwa Trek presented by Biogen was truly a ride like no other. South Africa’s premier four-day mountain bike stage race took place from 6-9 February 2020 as one of the first UCI events of the season. With breath-taking trails through the Bokkeveld and winding routes in the Witzenburg area, this race features some of the most unique scenery South Africa has to offer.
With a total distance of 285.5 kilometres and 5.750m of climbing some of the world’s best mountain bikers as well as aspiring amateurs took on this journey, starting and ending at the Kaleo Guest Farm in the stunning Western Cape. Nearly 600 mountain bikers from 29 countries tackled the eighth edition of the Tankwa Trek with the UCI competitors list stronger than ever, including former world champs, Cape Epic winners and of course the defending champions from 2019.
