Stihl SA National MTB DHI Cup Series #1

Stihl SA National MTB DHI Cup Series #1

The popular Contermanskloof track in Durbanville, Western Cape, played host to the opening round of the Stihl SA National MTB DHI Cup Series, in partnership with the Western Province Mountain Biking Commission, on Sunday 22 February. Blisteringly hot conditions made it difficult for the competitors as well as spectators. With no water available up on the mountain it was a case of take up what you need adding 1kg per litre to the weight of my normal equipment .

All my images from the day are available for download on the PhotoSport Website.

24 hour MTB at Oak Valley

24 Hour MTB at Oak Valley Wine Estate

Every year the 24 hours of mountain biking in the Elgin Valley draws hundreds of campers!

Mountain bike and event company Dirtopia,  have organised almost twenty 24Hour relay MTB events since 2003, so they know what they are up to, and this race at the stunning Oak Valley Wine Estate is a very popular annual weekend in the countryside.

Presented by Spur Steak Ranches, families gather around camp fires and kids have big grass fields to play on at this beautiful wine farm in Grabouw. And all this while mom and dad blast their mountain bikes around the 11km single track loop for 24 hours.

Is there a better way to spend a weekend?
