What is Mountain Madalas?
“Madalas” is Zulu for “old man”. Well in our sport we don't get older, we just get better and as we do we were faster and faster (that's our story and we're sticking to it).
Enduro World's Mountain Madalas gives the “Mature” riders an opportunity to re-live their favourite memories, whether they be of Roof's done 20 years ago or whatever. The route will be approximately 40 km's long, nothing extreme or too challenging – just a really fun and enjoyable ride in a beautiful place, with lots of friends and no pressure.
One lap will earn you a Bronze medal, 2 laps a Silver and 3 laps a Gold Madalas medal. It is an amazing route carefully planned to include really fun riding with just enough mildly technical stuff to give you a bit of a challenge and a whole lot of fun.
For those who just refuse to accept their age (the childish ones amongst us) there will even be one or two optional challenges along the route.
Too Young to be a Madala?
No problem, you're welcome to ride with us old codgers ... as long as you can stand listening to the stories of how fast we were when we were your age.
