Duane Stander from Concept Cyclery Waterfall, who has been hard at work building the track, is looking forward to the weekend of solid XCO racing at the new venue. “The venue is at the local Mazarat farm, which is an absolutely beautiful place. It’s lovely and green, and a wonderful little stream flowing through the property, and even some horses. It’s just such a great setting,” he said.

In terms of the course, Stander mentioned that it would be a four-kilometre loop of mountain bike trails with lots of exciting sections to look forward to. “There’s a nice big climb, great bridge crossing, and awesome rock gardens,” he added.

The Mazarat MTB Park also plays host to XCO time trials every Wednesday evening for local riders to come and test their off-road pedal skills against the clock.

“Its also great for the local riders around the Hillcrest, Gillitts and Pinetown areas to come along and ride in a great, safe venue such as this one,” he added.

Stander mentioned that it was a goal to have more cyclists coming to the park to enjoy the facilities in the safe environment. Developments such as this will ultimately nurture young talent and further grow the sport of mountain biking in the province.
