Hundreds of cyclists celebrate Mandela’s legacy at MTB Dash

Rio 2016 Olympian Alan Hatherly (Kargo Pro Cycling Team) and South African endurance athlete Jeannie Dreyer (Merchants) took the top honours at the 2016 Mandela Day Marathon MTB Dash in the windy KwaZulu-Natal Midlands located at the Nelson Mandela Capture Site on Saturday 27 August 2016. Hatherly’s conditioning was on top form following last weekend’s Olympic XCO race in Rio, and Dreyer’s supreme fitness saw them both trump the 42-kilometre route.

The grandson of our late former President Nelson Mandela – Mandla Mandela – took full opportunity to cycle in honour of his late grandfather. “Today went very well. It was a very touching moment for me to be able to participate in the 21-kilometre mountain bike ride. At the same time it was a really challenging course. In his book “The Long Walk to Freedom”, Madiba says once you have climbed to the top of the hill, only then do you realise how many more hills and rivers you have to climb and cross. The Capture Site is a direct depiction of that chapter. Once we got to the top of the first hill only then did I realise how many hills we still had left to climb. I have to applaud all of those who came out today to ride in honour of our Madiba.”

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.
