Sibling rivalry at world famous Cascades track

The world famous venue of Cascades MTB Park will play host to the third and final round of the 2017 KZNMTB Enduro and Downhill Series on Sunday 30 April and Monday 1 May where local Pietermaritzburg racing brothers Jonathan and Christopher Philogene will continue their series tussle for the top place on the Downhill points log this season.

Older brother Jonathan currently leads the provincial series log by just 30 points over Christopher, and with this last race remaining to determine the ultimate winner, it’s going to be tough out there.

Jonathan (20) explains that even though Downhill racing is an individual sport that determines one winner, they function as a team with a strong support structure locally from their family, friends and sponsors Lapierre SA, Fox and Good 2 Go.

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.
