The Dr Evil Classic MTB is an opportunity to ride sections of the Garden Route not normally accessible outside this event. Journey along the roads of private game and dairy farms, ride through the indigenous forests around Plettenberg Bay, take in the majesty of the coastal route with breath-taking clifftop ocean views and appreciate the mountains and winelands around Kay and Monty Vineyards. The Dr Evil Classic is a world-class race set in one of the most spectacular regions on earth making for a very unforgettable race.

2.      New race format:

3 days and 3 race villages; this is a first for the Dr Evil Classic and promises to be a real treat for riders. Each day will start and end at the same village, making it easy for riders to enjoy the unique trails each day and move easily between venues. The first day’s race village will bring riders back to Wittedrift for forest and farmland trails, while day two takes riders up to Cairnbrogie Farm for those memorable coastal trails and, finally, the third day will introduce riders to the Plett Winelands and The Crags at Kay and Monty Vineyards.

3.      Gentle Daily Distances:

Despite his reputation, Dr Evil aka Leon Evans wants to showcase the beautiful area that he calls home, so riders can expect a more manageable daily distance to really take in the scenery. The Dr Evil Classic is aimed at providing a race for all levels of rider.

4.      Goodie bags and lots of spoils

Leon Evans is best known as the route designer of the ABSA Cape Epic and he has brought his passion home to the Garden Route. Make no mistake, though, this is Dr Evil’s signature event and one worth experiencing for yourself.
