29 May MTO Uplands Mountain Bike Classic
On Saturday 29 May, the MTO Uplands Mountain Bike Classic offered adventure-seekers of all ages the opportunity to take part in mountain bike races ranging in distances. This event was traditionally part of the well-known and much-loved annual Uplands Festival. This year was a stand-alone event hosted at the MTO Trails Centre, just outside White River, in the heart of what has been said to be some of the best trails in South Africa.
With an outstanding number of participants totalling just over 400, the warm winter’s day was a major success, providing the opportunity for family fun rides as well as some serious challenges for the experienced riders. Races included a 5km fun ride, a 15km cruise, a 35km Challenge and the 55km Classic.
