Hi there




Welcome to the newest and most exciting thing to happen to mountain biking, THE HONDA MOUNTAIN TROPHY.




This two-day mountain biking event promises to be an exhilarating experience and will take place over the weekend of 1 and 2 May 2010.




So what makes this event so special? Based at Maropeng, in the heart of The Cradle of Humankind, the event is one of a kind as we have managed to negotiate with the land owners in the area to gain exclusive access to some of the most fantastic and unbelievable riding trails ever.




See below for more details.




A Bit More Detail and How to Enter




The Honda Mountain Trophy promises a fantastic offering of single track, plus some challenging off-road, and of course some good technical aspects. We will be making good use of tracks and trails which have previously only been used for private events.




On these farms you will be riding amongst some amazing wildlife such as Zebra, Wildebeest and even Rhino.




Entries open on 10 March, and will close once we have a full field of 350 entrants.




Day 1: 75km of exhilarating riding, beautiful views, a few hills and much more (Start time: 07.00)


Day 2: 40km of even more unbelievable riding. (Start time: 08.00)




Cost R375-00 per entry. This is for both days and is not a team event.




Entry Includes:




Goodie Bag with Race T-Shirt


Lunch after each stage ? a special braai for each entrant on both days as well as a beer tent to ensure you are able to quench your thirst


Special bike-wash after the stages


Live entertainment all weekend


Race medal


Beer garden

This is a Pre-Entry event and NO entries will be accepted on race day.




The 2010 Cradle Festival




While you are sweating it out, Maropeng will host the inaugural 2010 Cradle Festival.




This will take place from Friday the 30th of April, to Sunday the 2nd of May. It will also include a trail run offering runners an option of 5km, 10km and 20km. Plus there will be live entertainment and activities for the whole family.


But more about that later.




The Honda Mountain Adventure: Sunday 2 May




If you think The Honda Mountain Trophy is a bit much for you, why not come on Sunday, the 2nd of May and try The Honda Mountain Adventure.

The Honda Mountain Kiddies Adventure: Sunday 2 May
