Croeser & Vale victorious at final round of SA MTB Cup Series

Cold conditions greeted the riders at Cascades MTB Park in Pietermaritzburg for the fourth and final round of the Stihl SA MTB Cup Series, which saw tough competition and hard racing amongst all the categories today.

The sun broke through at the beginning of the Elite Men’s seven-lap race at 1pm, five minutes before the Junior Men took off to race their five. The Elite race was a neck-and-neck battle to the end between Full Dynamix Pro Team’s Rourke Croeser and Kargo Pro MTB Team rider, Alan Hatherly.

Croeser surprised the crowds with his entry, as he arrived from Europe to race and then proceeded to take the Elite Men’s victory ahead of Hatherly, who topped the series’ points log. “I arrived on Thursday evening – it was a late decision. KZN MTB managed to help me out to get me here,” said Croeser.

A quick overview of the nine rounds of the season, which starts on April 11 and will be available on Red Bull TV:

  • Two new rounds: Lourdes (France) which makes its debut by opening the season, and Lenzerheide (Switzerland), at the beginning of July
  • After a year’s break, the return of Val di Sole (Italy) which will close the season at the end of August, one week before the UCI MTB World Championships in Andorre

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.
