On wed 13th December 2017 extreme athlete and Sabrina Love Foundation Ambassador Jamie Marais will attempt a world first, which may well be his toughest extreme challenge yet – a Sani Pass twelve hour record attempt on a mountain bike.
At 2 896m and situated on the border of South Africa and Lesotho, Sani Pass is higher than any climb ever ridden in the Tour de France and is rated by Champions mountain bikers as the hardest rideable climb in Africa.
Widely know for his world record twenty two summits of Table Mountain last year, Jamie is doing this to inspire people to face their giants and raise support for the Sabrina Love Foundation who care for children with special needs.
“I want to inspire people to realise that nothing they are facing is too big to face,” says Marais.
His goal is to ride to the summit of the brutal ascent of Sani Pass on a mountain bike as many times as possible in twelve hours, a feat that has never been done before.
