Craig Fussel, the 1st Solo Male, had this to say about the Makadas Overland Challenge:

'Mitzi Knipe of Makadas Adventures was bold to host the 2012 Makadas Overland Adventure on the 21st of April. The 280km course travelled through some of the best parts of the Karoo and includes up close and personal technical sections early on, followed by fast flowing open district roads that boast incredible views as is typical of the Karoo in autumn.

I was selfishly spoilt with an abundance of game, a rare honey badger, soaring raptors, magnificent scenery, and possibly one of the most incredible sunsets I have ever seen in the Karoo, all of which took place while celebrating life on the saddle of a mountain bike.

The dark silence of the Karoo at night is even more special on a bicycle when navigated by the tunnel vision of a head light beam with absolutely no knowledge of what is around you except the stars. Mitzi (and her team) have captured what endurance mountain biking is all about! It's not about the race; it's about the people, the camaraderie, the personal touch and the great experiences of organisers, supporters and the riders. Racing under these conditions is magical and all endurance mountain bike enthusiasts should consider adding the Makadas Overland Adventure to their event schedule; they will not be disappointed.'
