About

Rock and Rut History:

Founded in 1999 by a few enthusiasts just as mountain biking made its global début, Rock and Rut now boasts over 300 members and has a been at the forefront of growing the sport in Namibia.

What we do:

We organise a cross country race series that is open to mountain bikers from all walks of life and skill levels, namely our five “XC” races that take place over the course of a year which are completely free for our members
We also organise one two-day marathon event called Otjihavera which is for our more serious members which takes place in winter and is quickly becoming a not to be missed event on the calendar of international professionals
We do our best to support the upkeep and continuous development of trails
We foster the MTB sport in Namibia by running a Youth Development Programme and driving Namibian MTB participation on an Olympic level
