Come play in the dirt!
Cape Town Cycle Tour MTB Challenge
is less than a month away!

It’s almost time for the mud, sweat and gears of the Cape Town Cycle Tour MTB Challenge on Saturday, 3 March 2018!

Previously held over two days, the 2018 event has merged into one day of dirt and adrenaline highs on exciting trails designed by Dirtopia’s Meurant Botha.

“A famous quote goes ‘Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.’ Well, this year’s MTB Challenge has a dirt trail for every mountain biker!” says David Bellairs, Marketing, Media and Sponsorship Director of the organisers, the Cape Town Cycle Tour Trust.

“The 20km route is perfect for those looking to ride with family and friends of varying ability; the 40km heads up to Delvera where the climbs can be pretty intense so this route is geared towards more experienced riders; and the 60km route is a proper test with extended single-track runs and big climbs,” says Bellairs.

“Unfortunately we need to keep the fields for each distance pretty limited. Keen mountain-bikers should enter soon so they don’t miss out!”

Entry is via the Cycle Tour website:
