Philogene trumps Cascades

Christopher Philogene was the fastest man to descend the mountain at Cascades MTB Park during the third and final round of the 2017 KZNMTB PROVINCIAL DOWNHILL SERIES on Monday 1 May. The only rider to break the four minute 30 second mark, young Christopher touched on that time with a 4:30.24 in his first timed run and bettered that with a 4:27.99 on his second run, in a race where the best time of two runs counted.

Speaking in the short recess before his second timed run, Philogene said: “It’s a very tiring track and very physical and there is a lot more pedaling required in the new section they have added, which is part of the Enduro track. It makes it tiring on your legs, especially where you have to tuck down for more speed and hold the squat position. I’m feeling good and going to try and keep it smooth and consistent all the way down, but I am happy with how the first run went.”

Development stars bask in the spotlight at Pmb MTB Festival

Pietermaritzburg - The success of KZN Cycling's and Cycling South Africa's development programme was on full display as development racing kicked off the three-day long Pietermaritzburg Mountain Bike Festival at the Cascades Mountain Bike Park on Friday. All districts of KwaZulu-Natal were represented, with 10 riders from each district showing off their skills.

Since the KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) Department of Sport and Recreation got behind the development initiative, cycling has been making increasingly significant inroads into communities, especially in rural areas.
