Parys Island Dirtmax MTB Series

So I saw this advertised on Supercycling entries. Mate and I decided to do the ride, since we wanted to do 60Km of riding, not a club ride.


Missioned out to Parys flippen early to do this race.

We get there, and there are a hand full of riders, literally. Not a problem though, guy announces the 60km start, and we head off. Lekkker


Route is ok, i guess, then, becomes tar for a while, back onto the dirt, and then tar again.

In total this was a good 15km of tar. But we think, 60km, 15km of tar is no biggie, we continue.


Long story short, we finish the race, and both our Odo's read 48km.

15 of which are tar,


So we trekked, 150km's to do a 33km MTB race.

We asked the race organizers, and they didnt seem to give a $h1t.

So dont make the same mistake as us, and dont bother with that race. A club ride and coffee, would have been much better.
