Slick and super racing for Downhill Champs

Although strong morning winds made for alternate finish section arrangements, the short but exhilarating course kept spectators glued to their seats for the 2017 KZNMTB Provincial Downhill Championships at Cascades MTB Park on Sunday 2 July. Among the brilliant names of champions crowned was Elite Men’s Champ and fastest man down on the day, Christopher Philogene. Sabine “Beanie” Thies claimed the prize for the fastest Overall Women’s category, first Youth Woman, and third Youth overall.

Originally planned to finish on two tabletops in the Cascades forest, the tables were removed from the route because of the strong winds. Riders had to ride around this section to the end, which required a fast and hard peddle sprint.

The Championships consisted of two runs - the best of both then counted towards the final result. Results were often very close between the first and second runs, proving the consistency of many of these riders.

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.
