Cyclists honour Mandela's triumph of the human spirit

Hundreds of eager mountain bikers gathered at the iconic Nelson Mandela Capture Site in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands to cycle in honour of the great late former President Nelson Mandela as they tackled the 42km, 21km and 10km routes with Brendon Davids and Candice Neethling claiming the victories.

In what has been dubbed a massive prize purse for a classic race distance, Davids (Kargo Pro MTB Team) and Neethling (Pam Golding/Specialized) were both dominant in their performances from the get-go.

Davids pushed hard from the start and was not pressured by acclaimed cycling stars Darren Lill, Andrew Hill (TIB Insurance), Tyronne White (Thule SA), and other eager cyclists climbing the pack. By the 30km mark he had stretched his lead to more than five minutes in the incredible singletrack that was waiting for them in the Lion’s River Valley.

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.
