3 days of epic riding over 355km...

The annual Matat2Pont is our marquee event, which attracts thousands of spectators and viewers of the live broadcasts on social media. The event was founded by Dean Riley after the 2014 Matat National Enduro when he called up fellow enthusiast Sakkie Maartens, as well as our signature rider, Alfie Cox to launch the event. They wanted to share their passion and excitement for the sport with other riders and expose them to some incredible routes in the area. In 2015, the first Matat2Pont 3 day Enduro event was successfully launched.

On the first day the ride begins in Matatiele where you ride through the mountainous region of the Eastern Cape and southern KZN to Kokstad. Riders should expect exceptional riding with some challenging sections.

On day 2 the riders begin in Kokstad and head towards Harding which entails some undulating hills, valleys and river crossings with spectacular sceneries. On day 3 riders begin their last leg from Harding, heading down to the coast and through Bongwana. The teams can expect an adventurous and thrilling ride, finally ending off by crossing the Umtamvuna river over our infamous floating bridge at The Pont in Port Edward.

We are proud to have launched a local community project called S.H.O.E.S where we, together with the teams, collect 2nd hand clothing and shoes for the underprivileged communities and distribute them on the route while promoting awareness for this charity.

Sportsmen Helping Others Enjoy Shoes.

The SHOES charity was formed in 2015 with the intention of collecting shoes and clothing items to help the less fortunate people in the rural areas. The Kokstad and Matatiele area is known for its severe cold winters, with added snowfalls and heavy frost. Some children have to walk long distances to school in these conditions witthout shoes.

For 2024, SOX have come on board and have donated 2000 pairs of socks to the cause our goal this year is to match the SOX donation and get 2000 pairs of shoes. Socks + Shoes = SMILES!

If you would like to donate, kindly contact us or bring a pair (or few) of shoes with you to the event.
