Bicycling (South Africa) - - RACE DIARY - – Mariske Strauss

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.
