I spent last weekend on the trails of the mountainbike race 1Zambia MTB. The race is well on its way to being recognised as one of the most spectacular and wild mountain bike stage races in Africa. The race is almost 250 km long and spans over three days.
The first two stages of the race are located in and around the Lilayi area outside Lusaka. The third stage goes from Lilayi Lodge to Kiambi Safari Lodge, a 100km final stretch along the Zambezi River.
