Course Description:

The 52km mountain bike starts in Camperdown and finishes at Inanda Dam. The route comprises some fast off-road sections, steep ascents and descents through the Valley of a Thousand Hills and some superb new single track leading into the valley and down to Inanda Dam. It may be a fast course but don't be fooled; it is a challenging 52km of off-road mountain biking. Climatic conditions are another factor to consider and participants may experience extremes between the misty highs of Inchanga to the swealtering 40OC heat of the Inanda Valley. In dry conditions, the top athletes are expected to take around 2h30 for this leg while on average, cyclists can expect to take 3h15 - 4h00 to complete the route.
