Event Name: Namaqua MTB Challenge
When: 29 October 2011
Where: Vredendal / Die Keldery, Western Cape
Category: MTB

The 56km route consists of about 90% jeep track. The climbs are mainly rocky and technical. Rewarding views of the Olifants River valley awaits the effort. Some fast down hills with hair raising bends. This route requires fit and experienced riders. Good climbing skills are necessary. Rocky hills and sandy tracks will definitely test your skills and abilities.

 

The 32km route is mainly jeep track. The climbs can be rocky in some places and also very steep. But for every up, there must be a down, and in this case it’s no different, with fast paced descents all the way. For fit riders this will be a walk in the park, for the not so fit it will be harder, but an unforgettable challenge.

 

The 10km route is aimed at beginners and kids.

How long is the hill and at what gradient?

It is about 600m long and the maximum gradient is 23.7 according to google earth. That is not the problem though. The surface is is full of fist size round rocks. I do believe someone will be able to do it. The pic was taken on top of the climb.

According to google earth 1300m. I am not so sure how accurate this is.

This pic is the steepest part of Skaapkop.
