Youare invited to take part in the annual Nguni Grill Cycle Challenge

hosted by Polokwane Pedallers on 16 June 2012.


This year we have added an exiting Cross Country Mountain bike race to the



*Road Race*:

There will be three distances this year:

1) A 70km event

2) A 35km event

3) A 1,4km fun ride for the kids.


In an effort to make the sport a little more spectator friendly, as well as

to deviate from the old recipe, we have decided to keep it close to town on

a 17km loop. the 70km riders will do 4 laps, and the 35km race will do two



*Mountain Bike races:* (for 12 years and older )

For the first time the Nguni Grill Cycle Challenge will host MTB events as

well, and again it was decided to deviate from the normal races by hosting

a Cross Country (XC) short course event. The longer of the two events will

be 6 laps around a 5,5km course, and 3 laps for the shorter event.

This will give the spectators an opportunity to put op their camping chairs

and enjoy the race much more, and see their favourite rider swooping past a

few times, in contrast to the normal races where they only see the riders

start and finish.
