Hat-trick of title for Stuart Marais

Defending champion Stuart Marais overcame a "silly" potentially race-ending crash to claim his third KZN Lap Challenge Mountain Bike Championship title at the Mazarat Park course in Waterfall on Sunday.

In the women's race, matric student Tiffany Keep put her books away on Saturday night and was in a league of her own the next morning as she cruised to victory to claim the junior title with Christie Leigh Hearder finishing second to take the U23 title.

The men's race was a tense battle for the opening three laps as Marais and U23 rider Henry Liebenberg battled for any advantage on the tough, technical track which is being used for a major event for the first time.

On the third lap Marais managed to get a small gap and extended that on laps four and five to start his final 3,5km circuit with a healthy one-minute cushion. Halfway around the course the leader glanced over his shoulder to check that Liebenberg was not closing and nearly ended his race as he clipped a tree.

International News

After season-long competitions that saw the most consistent athletes crowned UCI World Cup winners, the best event organisers are also being rewarded.

Stakeholders at the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup presented by Shimano, the BMX Supercross World Cup and the UCI Trials World Cup have voted for the best event of each of the series, taking into account different criteria including organisation, venue, course/track and atmosphere. The winners are….

Downhill: Fort William (GBR)

KZN Cycling Development

For many years now, Pietermaritzburg and the province of Kwazulu – Natal has been recognised worldwide as a leader in the staging of major cycling events and since 2009, Pietermaritzburg has been recognised as Africa’s Bike City. In fact, the region is now recognised worldwide as having staged the most varied international events in history - a great accolade for the city and the region.

After staging 10 x UCI World Cups, 6 x UCI World Championships and 3 x Continental Championships in various disciplines as well as a host of other major international road cycling events, it was decided that the focus of activities should switch to development programmes and the unearthing of new talent from the region of KZN for the future. Thus the KZN Cycling Development programme came into being and is being undertaken in conjunction with the KZN Department of Sport & Recreation who provide the vast bulk of the funding that allows for such activities to take place and also with Cycling South Africa.
