JBAY Windfarm MTB Classic 2017.

Purpose-built singletrack, spectacular views and fast farm roads – all a mountain-biker could wish for, really. Now in its fifth year, the event will offer something for riders of a range of fitness and skill levels.

With the start and finish at the Kabeljouws Lagoon parking lot, there will be three routes available to riders: a 25km fun ride, a 50km half-marathon and an 85km ultra.

25km –   Designed for the adventurous fun rider looking to ride a significant distance and will be fairly flat and non-technical.

50km –   Requires good technical proficiency and some training in the legs, aimed at       trail riders.

85km –   Aimed at the seriously fit riders who are in for a real treat.  Traditionally an ideal shakedown training ride ahead of Transbaviaans in August, the route will be technical and tough and, almost completely different from previous years with a lot of new singletrack. (Watch the local press for a full route reveal soon).

The event showcases some of the finest trails in the surrounding area and carries the unique distinction of being the only one-day race in Africa to traverse a wind farm.

There will once again be R50 000 worth of prizes up for grabs, with a R10 000 first prize for both the male and female 85km ultra category winners. Enter today online at jbaymtbclassic.co.za.
