A new decade marks a new dawn for the Barberton XCM. This legendary race will now be known as the Mopani Barberton XCM Mountain Bike Challenge. That's right, there's a new title sponsor in town, the well known Mopani Pharmacy. This new dawn does not just boast a new Title sponsor, but also new routes for the 20km and 30km riders through the Greenstone Wildlife estate. The Mopani Barberton XCM will host its 24th race, and was started by the Barberton Rotary Club. The Rotary Club still organises the race and all proceeds raised are donated to various initiatives in the town and surrounding areas - so by entering you are actually making a donation to charity, well done!

The 24th annual Barberton XCM is taking place on 25 January 2020 and is not to be missed. Make sure that you pre-enter as soon as possible at As always, this race will be "not as delicate as a daisy" with cyclists pushing their limits, regardless of which distance you decide to enter.

Barberton, a small undiscovered gem in Mpumalanga is known for its majestic mountains, the Makonjwa mountains, incredible scenery - with the Geotrail just been named as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, wildlife estates and tough mountain bike race. The race promises to push you to your limit and is seen as the perfect testing and training ground for the Cape Epic. Riders such as Nico Bell and Henry Uys has not only been crowned King of the mountain, but also the ultimate #DaisyWarriors - by winning the 110km grueling Ultra marathon.
