Powered by Century 21 JHB South , Thaba Trails hosted the 2nd of a series of GAUTENG XCO Races. In perfect weather a number of skilled as well as developing riders stormed around the 4.1km course being prepared for the South African XCO Championships on 20th July. Missing were a number of top elite riders who are doing duty at the Cape Epic but the'll be back. Very encouraging to see the youth and juniors charge around a course recently criticized as being "Too Difficult " but making it look rather easy. Don't be mistaken, it is a course living up to National standards.
