The Cool Ideas Cradle Mountain Trophy

Saturday, 24 October 2020 - Sunday, 25 October 2020
GautengHappy Acres Magaliesburg


We are pleased to announce that we now have a new home...Happy Acres, situated just down from Maropeng near Magaliesburg. It is approximately 10km further down the road, so there is no long drive to the start.

The weekend caters for riders of all abilities – offering distances from 75km, 45km to 30km.(Note change in this distance)


If you have done this mountain biking event before, you will know that The Cool Ideas Cradle Mountain Trophy promises a fantastic offering of single track, plus some challenging off-road and, of course, some good technical aspects. But do remember that we call this the “Mountain Trophy” for good reason. It is not all flat. We will be making good use of tracks and trails which have previously been used for private events.


If you are training for the Kap Sani2C or other postponed races, then this must be an event that’s on your training schedule.


Riders will have the option of competing in four different events, namely:

  • The Cradle Mountain Trophy – 75km on Saturday the 24th and 45km on Sunday the 25th of October –
