7 WEEK SPOORT MTB CHALLENGE
It’s always fun racing in the Karoo, and September presents another opportunity: the 7Weekspoort MTB Challenge, in combination with the Ladysmith Cheese festival. The route is flat and fast – not too technical, but with lots of scenery. If you’re a mountainbike newbie looking for an enjoyable racing experience, this is a great one to start with. But be sure to come prepared for a tough race, especially if the wind picks up. This event serves as great training prep for the end- of-year races still to come.
