Is there to be no 2020 Amarider?

 

I can't find any information on whether there will be one or not.

 

I note the following on the dirtopia website

 

 

The events team are now focusing more on the Spur Schools MTB League with Amarider from 2020 and are scaling down other operations for this purpose.

 

Is this the death of it?

 

I was hoping to do the Amarider and Around the Pot this year, so I'll have to find another 100 miler somewhere

If it is DED, Swartberg is rad.

 

The only other one I can think of off hand is the one up near Lesotho. I think it launched last year?

They posted this on their FB event page: 

 

"Note that the 100Miler event will take place in 2021 again..." 

 

Was also really looking forward to it again this year, so lets hope that it really does make a comeback unlike the XCO World Cup we were promised would also be back. 

 

Agree with Jewbacca, give Swartberg 100 a go it's a real bucket list event.

Around the pot has 200 miler this year if you into those things

 

Baby steps...

 

I had my eye on the 36One next year, but the RTP 200 is a little closer to home, so may give it a bash instead.

interesting that the concept of amarider as a club/advocacy group never really took off.

 

the 100miler organised by amarider as a fundraiser is what people are now genercially referring to it as.

 

 http://www.amarider.co.za/contact# is ded in the water

 

As far i'm aware, amarider still going, just website never been updated

 

https://www.amarider100miler.co.za is the 100miler official site and next one will be 2021 if I recall, I'll try find emails
