Holla Trails are putting together a new single track-laden route for the mountain bikers with the course for two-man teams featuring new and existing trails of about 65km on Friday, 53km on
Saturday and wrapping up with a 32km challenge on Sunday.
Both the road and the MTB event will offer prizes in all-male, all-female and mixed categories. Solo riders can compete but are not eligible for category prizes.
Day one starts with a fast 10km section followed by steady climbing to the highest point of the day just after the half way mark. The climb to the 32km point features some great single track and some points of interest like the Croc Farm. The highlights of the trip back down are the exciting Howards Bush and Nirvana single-track. Having completed 50km there is one final big climb for the day and then its fast into the finish.
Day two lights up with a visit to the Rain Farm and some possible game-sightings. The Rain Farm marks the start of the long slow climb to the highest point of the day which is just after half way. The route winds down with some interspersed climbs so that the rewards of some great single track are earned. The last 8kms are all fast-downhill to the finish.
Day three is the reward for all the hard work over the first two days. There is not a lot of climbing but rather some entertaining flowing single track. Early on the route goes past the beautiful Dudley Pringle Dam before a single-track climb to the highest point at half way. There is some great single track on the way back down and a special bonus single track 5km from the finish.
