The course will be a 12-kilometre circuit, with a maximum distance of 48 kilometres (each rider either does one, two or all four laps – depending on the category entered).  Entry fee is R150.00 per rider.

Due to the nature of the course, solo entries will be limited to 120 men and 30 women, whereas the teams of two and four riders are not limited. So gather your cycling mates and join fellow enthusiasts in this exciting format of racing at a spectacular new venue on the racing calendar.

With a whopping R70 000 total prize money up-for-grabs, its not difficult to see why this event is a must-do race for all mountain bikers this autumn.
