The Munga, a 1000km, single-stage mountain bike race is disappointed to announce that its inaugural race, set for 3 December 2014 across the Karoo in South Africa, has been postponed.
“The Munga offers more than just a race, it’s a test against the toughest of external elements – and today we face one of the race’s toughest challenges, having to postpone the event to 2015, as one of our key investors has withdrawn,” says Alex Harris, renowned explorer, athlete, founder of Xplore Authentic Experiences and Race Director of The Munga.
“The vision of The Munga remains clear; to create a global platform where we completely challenge the norm and format of endurance racing and the individuals’ perception of what is possible. Given the integrity of our brand and partners, we have taken the decision to postpone the race to 2015 with immediate effect.
“The amount of local and global interest in The Munga has been phenomenal and we are so excited and honoured to be at the forefront of making endurance and mountain bike racing history,” concludes Harris.
“The Munga Dream has not changed and is just getting stronger”
