  1. The 2020 event just finished, and by the looks of things okes hard a difficult day. This will be my third attempt (bailed on the first, finished the second in 23 hours) 22 Weeks to go. Not sure when training will start, coach will decide that will be a lot cooler in May
  2. Dryland’s flagship UCI events, the Momentum Health – Cape Pioneer Trek, Tankwa Trek and Attakwas Extreme – presented by Biogen, are some of the toughest events in the country on bicycle tyres. The rocky Klein Karoo sections of the Cape Pioneer and Attakwas Extreme have provided drama annually when elite riders have punctured. At the Cape Pioneer Trek in 2016 James Reid and Julian Jessop’s third place overall was lost to a puncture on the final stage, while at the 2017 Attakwas Extreme Christoph Sauser had to fight back to victory, from five minutes down, due to a puncture in the opening twenty kilometres.

The Tankwa Trek meanwhile provides more than just a test of durability; the technical singletracks require puncture protection, grip and a low rolling resistance in equal measures. Fortunately as Rae Earl of Interac Distribution, Continental Bicycle Tyre’s South African agents, explains Continental Tyres have that covered: “To date, no other tyre brand worldwide has been able to match Continental’s Black Chili Compound, which reduces rolling resistance by 26% and improves grip by 30%. Black Chili Compound comes standard on all Conti ProTection MTB tyres.” Continental’s ProTection construction ensures superb puncture protection with a patented ProTection casing over four plies of 240 threads per inch (TPI) nylon under the tread and three plies of 180 TPI nylon sidewalls. This is sure to aid riders by ensuring “the lowest rider down-time due to tyre related problems in seriously tough race events like the Attakwas Extreme and the Cape Pioneer Trek” concluded Earl. Interac Distribution and Dryland Event Management have rekindled a partnership which first started in 2009 with the launch of the inaugural Cape Pioneer Trek and even included a Cape Pioneer branded X-King tyre for the fifth edition in 2013. “We’re proud to have teamed up with Interac Distribution and Continental Tyres once again” said Henco Rademeyer of Dryland Event Management. “Most importantly though for our entrants this partnership will mean access to Continental Tyres at a discounted rate at all our mountain bike events and discounts on Continental Tyres outside our events through Dryland’s loyalty programme which we will be rolling out in 2018.” In addition to the partnership with Continental Bicycle Tyres, Dryland have also partnered with Continental Tyre South Africa to keep the growing fleet of Dryland vehicles rolling. With the harsh terrain Dryland’s race routes take in the vehicles need a rugged tyre just as much as the event entrant’s bikes do. So from September 2017 the fleet will all feature General Tire tyres. Dryland recommend a Continental X-King tyre on the front wheel and a Race-King tyre on the rear wheel of your bike, as well as General Tire Grabber AT3 tyres on your 4x4. Photo by Oakpics.com. General Tire has been producing tyres since 1915 and in 1987 was purchased by Continental Tyres. The General Tire Grabber AT3 products, with which the Dryland vehicles are equipped, are a new generation of all-terrain tyres which are locally manufactured in Continental’s Port Elizabeth facility. "General Tire is our adventurous brand” explained Ryan Visagie, Product Communications Manager for Continental Tyres South Africa. “Our slogan ‘Anywhere is Possible’ is a perfect fit for the places that these events will take you. Mountain biking is a sport that plays to the adventurer in all of us, and this is precisely where our General Tire brand likes to play too, enabling the adventure in peoples’ everyday lives." “The durability and integrity that you will find in General Tire products, for your vehicle, is precisely what you will find in the range of Continental tyres for your bicycle,” Visagie added. Entrants to Dryland Event Management’s races will be able to learn more about Continental Tyres at all the company’s mountain biking events from the Momentum Health Cape Pioneer Trek, presented by Biogen, onwards, or by visiting www.interacsa.com, www.continental-tyres.co.za or www.generaltire.co.za.

  3. Dryland Event Management is South Africa’s premier mountain bike and trail running events management company. The Smile Foundation has been selected by Dryland Event Management as their charity of choice and will be the beneficiary of 15 nationwide trail running and mountain bike events, starting with the 2016 Glacier Storms River Traverse which takes place from the 6th to the 8th of August. The Smile Foundation is a South African non-governmental organisation with a holistic health care vision for children with facial conditions. The Smile Foundation helps children in need of surgery for treatable facial anomalies such as cleft lip, cleft palate, nose and ear conditions, facial paralysis (Moebius Syndrome), burns and other facial conditions. The Smile Foundation is currently based in seven of the best academic hospitals in South Africa. They support teams of qualified compassionate medical staff by investing in further skills development programs, as well as the purchasing of much needed medical equipment for the departments specializing in plastic and reconstructive surgery within these hospitals. “In South Africa we have so many different languages and cultures but in sports no words are needed. As the sportsmen and women taking part in any of the Dryland events start their races, they are already winners in our eyes” says Hedley Lewis Smile Foundation, Executive Director. Dryland Event Management partnering with the Smile Foundation will prove to be truly rewarding and even more so for the children and families benefitting from this partnership. Alongside promoting the Smile Foundation, at all Dryland Event Management events and offering event entries to be auctioned in order to raise funds for the Smile Foundation, Dryland Event Management will offer would be event entrants the opportunity to donate directly to the Smile Foundation when entering an event online. Every little life affected is a smile won and worn on the face of a beautiful child with a future filled with many more smiles. Dryland Event Management has already raised a significant amount for the charity and will announce the Smile Foundation as their events’ official charity partner at the Glacier Storms River Traverse. Henco Rademeyer, Co-founder and Managing Director of Dryland Event Management explains “we’re proud to be associated with a charity like the Smile Foundation which so positively impacts the lives of South African children. As Dryland we felt that the Glacier Storms River Traverse was the perfect event to announce the new partnership as it’s a lifestyle event with a strong social and environmentally conscious focus. These initiatives are also strongly supported by event sponsor Glacier by Sanlam, as they have a strong corporate social responsibility ethos.” “This incredible opportunity of uniting sportsmen and women to help change children’s lives would have never been possible without Dryland Events” concluded Lewis.
