Jonkershoek. Arguably SA’s best trail network. Countless events have treaded these hills, from enduro MTB to trail running to marathon stage races like the Cape Epic. This weekend however was the turn, and return, of the Western Province Downhill series. After a 2 year hiatus, the track was revived and renewed by master trail builder Bennet Nel, but remained relatively unaltered in terms of features, layout and length from previous years.

Rad pics, really captured the dusty loose track. Learned to ride those bumpy ruts this weekend and conquer some fears to make a clean finals run. I recommend all #enduro riders do at least one DH event just to experience how different it is. Character building stuff. Youngest racer was 7, oldest 63 I believe.

@Headshot, Id be very keen to get one of these done. Getting 2days off from the family is going to be tough, but doing shuttles on the Saturday then Racing on the Sunday one should be getting plenty of Gnar and high speed stuff. I've been off the bike for 3 months since its been stolen but should be up and riding within the next week, but even before that, I found I got slightly uncomfortable at speed and would back it off just a tad.
