173 riders, @ R25.5k = R4.4m, plus some budget from sponsors.

now this race started as a 1m$ prize for winner, i don't think that will ever happen, but look at what is available. here is the prizemoney according to what is currently on the website doc under rules:

prize money, according to race doc which is still 2019 dates, is 1.5BTC. this 2019 figure of 186k is now  about R1.3m this is what is currently on the website, and translates to 1.5BTC still being the purse.

 overall winner gets 0.25 BTC = ~R227k

2nd place = R136k, 3rd R90k, 4th = 0

 

This is across the board, same for women's and for development (that is a lot of cash for a development rider!).

But will he be riding in Crocs??

Birkenstocks.... There is a difference apparently.

Nicky Booyens on the start list, the only person to have completed every single Munga ride and run. 

I also see Chris and Jiggs Fisher on the start line, the organisers of all the Freedom Challenge/RASA stuff. It's always good to see niche race organisers supporting other niche race organisers!

May the force be with you all!

Looking at this list it looks like the Afrikaners are tough or insane or both - I’m not sure what the demographics are in SA between English and Afrikaans 1st language.

My young mate Braam Wannenburg is doing his first one and I’m expecting him to surprise - I did a 100km recovery ride with him not too long ago and into a serious headwind I nearly puked sitting on his wheel - that said, if you can’t do that to me, you shouldn’t consider the Munga

My buddy, Nico, is riding it both ways this year - there and back.

He may not finish fastest, but he'll definitely finish farthest!

(also a part of the riders raising for Nika)
