In Events, Featured, J Bay Wind Farm MTB Classic, Latest News by Kev

Entries are listed and filling up fast. Aside from having the distinction of being the only mountain bike race in Africa to traverse a wind farm (as all three distance do) here are a few more good reasons to get you to the start line on 16 July 2016.

  1. Increased Prize Money across distances
    With the Jeffreys Bay Wind Farm having come on board as a title sponsor there has been an injection in the prize purse. The men’s and women’s winner in the Ultra will receive R10 000.
  1. A Spectacular Route
    Think purpose-built singletrack, great views, animal sightings all in a proper test of ‘real’ mountain-biking. Did we mention the 80-metre high turbines in the Wind Farm
  1. Fantastic lucky draw prizes
    Prize giving was a long drawn-out affair in 2015, simply because there were so many great lucky draw prizes on offer – nearly everyone present walked away with a great product. With great support from sponsors in 2016 it promises to be even more exciting!
  1. Festivities at the Kabeljous Hub
    The race village will form part of the Winterfest Hub with lots of activity for the family on the day, including food stalls a beer tent and play area on the day. The kite and fishing events are also taking place on the same day at the venue which will make for a great vibe.
  1. Great goodiebags to all pre entrants
    Free stuff from great sponsors…you know it!
