The Buco Origin of Trails is a 2-Day MTB Stage Race aimed at taking in the very best of the Stellenbosch Mountain Biking Trails. Using a network of the area’s best existing MTB Trails, as well as specially built and exclusive trails, this event will be a Mountain Bikers dream!

The major benefactor of the Stellenbosch Origin of Trails are the Stellenbosch Trail Building Fund and the Jonkershoek Trailbuilding Fund, who are committed to further develop the world-class trails in Stellenbosch. Together we believe we can help achieve the vision of establishing trails to make Stellenbosch one of the best networks of trails in the world!

Riders can expect a truly unique and special experience as the town of Stellenbosch comes alive with Mountain Bikers! Wherever possible, local suppliers and partners are be used during the event.

The Stellenbosch Buco Origin of Trails will not see the traditional race village setup that stage races are used to. Instead, the town of Stellenbosch will offer riders great offers on hospitality as the town comes abuzz!
