Successful first KZN MTB Provincial XCO with new format

The first KZNMTB Provincial XCO Cup of the Series once again kicked off in the forest of Hilton on Saturday 18 February. Spectators came from all over the province to support their friends and family on the day, and race organizers could not have asked for better weather conditions with temperatures reaching 30 degrees but a constant breeze throughout the day to keep the riders cool on the course.

The new batching format proved to be a challenge for some. Riders no longer raced against only their age group, but also raced against those with similar strength and riding ability - regardless of age. This format also however proved to be an exciting challenge for others, offering fresh new competition to those used to winning their respective age groups in the past.

The 6,6km lap race started and finished in Elizabeth Drive, directly across from the Hilton Christian Fellowship (HCF) Church, and then continued with single track sections through the forest. The tech zone was easily accessible from the road, which made for great spectator viewing.

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.
