10to4 MOUNTAIN BIKE RACES

EXTREME
2022-02-18 at 20.55.56

EXTREME (HARDCORE+CLASSIC)

Distance: Approx. 75km on Day 1 & 60km on Day 2
Minimum Age: 17+
Date: 24th & 25th February 2023
Entry Fee: Ksh 30,000

Extreme, adj. exceeding what is usual or reasonable.

Held over two days, the Extreme combines both the Hardcore and the Roller Coaster Classic. This event will challenge the fitness and technical abilities of seasoned mountain bikers and elite teams.

Covering approx. 80km on Day 1, riders will face an elevation gain and loss of nearly 2000m with fast technical sections and single track all on Borana Conservancy. Day 2 follows with the Roller Coaster, a 60km race that has become synonymous with the 10to4.

The Extreme is not for the faint of heart. If in doubt over either your endurance capabilities or technical riding prowess perhaps the “Classic or Rush” is the answer? You must be a seasoned mountain bike rider to take part.

WILD

WILD (WILD RIDE+CLASSIC)

Distance: Day 1 tbc & 60km on Day 2
Minimum Age: 17+
Date: 24th & 25th February 2023
Entry Fee: KSh 30,000

Wild, adj. (1) remote, uninhabited place; (2) unconstrained action or emotion

By popular demand, 2023 will see the introduction of a brand new combo - Wild Rides! Held over two days it is aimed at those who are keen for an extra challenge but aren't quite fit (or crazy?) enough for the Hardcore on Day 1. That said, Wild Rides aren't for the Sunday afternoon cyclist and although we've yet to design the route for Day 1, you can be sure there'll be lots of ups and downs and plenty of excitement.

On Day 1, the route will be entirely across the Borana Conservancy, while on Day 2 Wild Riders are expected to join the Classic race, though could opt to go for the Rush instead if Day 1 proves too much. However, first, second and third places will be awarded to those with the best combined time for Wild Ride+Classic.

CLASSIC
2022-02-18 at 12.46.36

CLASSIC

Distance: 60km
Minimum Age: 16+
Date: 25th February 2023
Entry Fee: KSh 26,000

Held on Day 2, the Classic is an experience that has become synonymous with the 10to4. Starting at nearly 3000 meters, (10,000 feet), on the northern slopes of Mount Kenya, riders will descend some 60km over demanding terrain, through indigenous forest and wide open plains, abundant with wildlife, down to the Ngare Ndare Forest at 1940 meters, (6400 feet) and then onto Borana Conservancy, finishing at Borana Race Village.

The ride is not, however, all downhill, featuring some vicious climbs when the body least wants it. Estimated ride time between 2 and 6 hours depending on ability. A high level of fitness and experience is required.

RUSH
2022-02-18 at 13.04.28

RUSH

Distance: 57km
Minimum Age: 14+
Date: 25th February 2023
Entry Fee: KSh 24,000

Running concurrently with the 'Classic' on Day 2, 'The Rush' is a less arduous 57km ride but will still provide exhilaration for mid-level cyclists and those seasoned mountain bikers who spend more time in their office chairs than is good for them.

Estimated ride time between 2 and 5 hours depending on ability.
