After a year of chaos, compliments of Corona, we finally kicked off the 2020 MTB season at the Computer Mania South African XCO Mountain Bike championships at Coetzenberg outside Stellenbosch.
It may have been a field limited to just a few categories, and not everyone could make it at short notice, but it was a great success. Alan Hatherly and Mariska Straus won the Elite categories in the men’s and women’s categories. Luke Moir proved his sporting pedigree by being crowned the junior men’s champion, with Andrea Schoffmann winning the junior women’s cross country title.
Well done to the Western Province Mountain Bike Commission for putting together such a well-organised event at incredibly short notice.
