MTB CLASSIC 2012

Route Description

Short Route: 15KM
Starting amongst olive groves and easy farm roads for the first 6km, you will be well warmed up by the time you hit the first climb on this varied, spectacular course. From the top of this climb, the Short Route will wind its way back down a fast but wide downhill, then a short flat section pass a dam before the last small hill thrown in for good measure before the finish.

Long & Medium Route: 45KM & 25KM
The long & Medium Routes continue on forest roads with spectacular views and down hills with good doses of single track. The Medium Route returns to the finish, whereas the Long Route continues along the Klein Drakenstein mountain slopes before heading home on this challenging, but captivating course.

Kiddies Route: 5KM
There is also an easy 5km loop amongst the olive groves. Spectators are welcome to picnic under the trees and watch the fun. There will be food for sale and jumping castles for the children.

Spectators are welcome to picnic under the trees and watch the fun. There will be food and drink for sale.

TRAIL RUN 2012

Route Description

Long Route: 25KM
The first five kilometres through olive groves on easy farm roads will enable the field to stretch out before the tough climb to the forest. A more gradual ascent follows in the shade of a pine forest before the course heads back down towards the finish line. Save your energy on the way back for a few short climbs before a final descent to the end through olive groves.

Medium Route: 14KM
This follows the same course as the long route until the forest. From here it is downhill all the way until a final sting in the tail near the end before a descent through olive groves to the finish.

Short Route: 5KM
This is an easy loop on farm roads through the olive groves.

Spectators are welcome to picnic under the trees and watch the fun. There will be food and drink for sale.
