      Winner 2014

      If you ride a mountain bike in the Western Cape, there’s a good chance you’ve heard of the Hanekom brothers. If you’ve tackled either a Cape Epic or the new Tankwa Trek in the last couple of years, you will have experienced some of their trailbuilding skills, toiled through their majestic farms in the Witzenberg Valley and no doubt considered plucking a succulent apple from their orchards

      According to the 2014 winner and cycling fanatic Hannes Hanekom he has the following to say -

      "First of all , the venue is amazing. Especially if you stay at the hotel which is just a stone throw away from the start and finish area and is super convenient for the riders. What I really liked about it the most is that it makes it very easy to accommodate the whole family because you don’t have to pack up and move every day and you can spend the rest of the day with them and enjoy the many activities the resort has to offer. Even if you are not staying there you can still have a drink or a meal with the other athletes after the race in one of their wonderful restaurants or bars and share some war stories about the days racing.

      The route is just perfect for this time of year, challenging for the more serious riders and manageable for the weekend warier. It is for most riders sort of the start of the off season and we don’t want to race ultra-distances anymore. The views are just simply breathtaking and because it is only about 50km per day of racing you are actually able to enjoy them for a change. Even when it rained , it didn’t really effect the route badly. I really enjoyed it!

      In one word, flawless. I have no complaints and the prizes and lucky draws were not half bad. I got to go back to the hotel for a weekend with my wife, how nice is that?

      I have entered for this year April 2015. It is such a nice atmosphere that I don’t want to miss out on it. And if you are not a Mountain biker you can always do the trail running or just cheer on one of your buddies or family members, but just to be there to soak up the vibe, you won’t be disappointed!

      Cheers! Hannes"

      The route for the advanced trail run has been lengthened to 22.6 km and the total ascent is 483 meters.

From there a long steady climb all the way to Iona Wine farm where the first and only water point is at 9 km. A nice fast and flat section at the top of the mountain before a steep and challenging downhill along the Kogelberg hiking trail takes you across the R 43 and to the finish.

      NOVICE TRAIL RUN RACE
      Sunday 26 April 2015

      The novice trail run has been made a bit more challenging this year, 11.6 km with 168 meters of ascent. The first section is along the Botriver lagoon in the Rooisand Nature reserve before looping back past the start and heading across the R 43 to Arabella phase 2 where T - shirt hill awaits. After walking t - shirt hill the trail winds it's way back across the R 43 to the finish.
