Nedbank Swaziland's Imvelo MTB Classic

Starting as Ngulube MTB Classic, the first mountain bike race in Swaziland in 2000, Mlilwane’s annual bike race changed its name to Imvelo MTB Classic in 2004. Our entries are capped to ensure we maintain a race with fabulous personality and the lowest possible environmental impact. It is quite a balancing act to remain a largely Swazi race and simultaneously attracting great competition and active participants from outside Swaziland!
