Registration starts on Friday 1 Feb, 12h00 – 19h00 at the Dirtopia Trail Centre & Bikeshop with Dirtopia Café being open until 7pm with food & drinks and entrants will get their event goodies upon registration.
On event days you will be treated to a breakfast snack & coffee every morning before heading out to participate in the 40km or 60km race. We’ve kept things flexible by giving you the choice of distance each day. If you’d like to shoot for a prize you will have to compete on the full, long routes on both days.
At the start, you will be led out through a short neutral zone by race director Meurant Botha from 7h15 every day. The well-stocked refreshment stations have food, snacks and cold drinks. There will be technical zones at the water points and marshals provided by Jan Kriel school as a fundraiser.
Day 1 – Route Description:
The day remains consistent with our goal of having an easier day than Day 2 with approx. 12km of single track.
Various sections of singletrack and the blue route on Delvera with boardwalks offer non-technical alternative to some of the gnarly sections and rock gardens. Those who enjoy more technical riding are welcome to tame the rougher sections on the route.
As can be seen from the profiles there are many undulations, but the elevations are less severe.
Day 1: Long Route
Distance: 55km, Elevation: 1380m
