The Elephant EPIc MTB Challenge

Zambia

The Elephant EPIC MTB Challenge, Zambia is the original Elephant EPIC event. The annual mountain bike race from Lusaka to the Lower Zambezi, began in 2012 with only 16 riders.  Today it attracts over 200 eager cyclists from all over Zambia.  This is the event that has inspired the global Elephant EPIC Challenge.  

 

The race follows a rugged and beautiful route from Lusaka to the Lower Zambezi down the escarpment, covering a distance of approximately 75 km. Long enough to be a challenge, yet short enough to attract riders of wide ranging abilities, the route showcases the remote and beautiful Zambian scenery.
