The arduous Bestmed Jock Tour, presented by Rudy Project, is set to occur from September 15 - 17. It covers 304KM and a daunting 7200 metres of vertical ascent over three days.
It's important to note that this event is not a challenge for the average rider. It constitutes the first event in South Africa that is mirrored on the Classic European Alpine road stage races, such as the Haute Route. There is no tougher three-day challenge on a road bike anywhere else on the African continent.
