I'm expecting a fair bit of climbing! I've ridden the DH (10 years ago) and some of the trails closer to the Botanical gardens and its all pretty steep. 

 

Excited for a day of riding with some new peeps. My ticket is booked. Registered and Accommodation booked in Hartenbos Wednesday to Sunday, so the kids can play on the beach. Wont have time for a recon though. 

 

Any Ideas of which trails will be ridden (sneak peak on trail-forks)

I'm so stoked to see so many guys from out of town signing up. I'll definitely have to do some route marking to make sure you guys don't take a wrong turn mid-stage.

 

1300m of climbing. The route is plotted on Trailforks, but not published. The Hillbillies employees still have a few trails to cut open, after the heavy winds. I'll drop the route here mid-September.

So stoked for this, especially after the EWS in Zermatt. Really in the mood for just something. Thanks you for organizing and making the effort for this to happen.

Well, hopefully It has better weather, although at this stage I will take anything!

If only the forest still looked like this. It looks like the aftermath of a war zone at the moment. All the trees that burnt a couple years ago have since rotten, and the strong winds that rolled through several weeks ago just snapped most of the trees in half or completely uprooted them.

The trails are riding really nicely though. The Hillbillies MTB Club and trail running groups have been working really hard to open everything up.
