Mountain bikers: It’s time to fill your bucket list. The 2017 Trans-Karoo MTB one-day 247 km endurance MTB ride will take place on 2 September 2017. This year is the “down ride”, starting in Sutherland and finishing at Koleo outside Ceres.

As one of the previous rider commented, “be in the moment”. Most riders will take from sunrise to sunset (and even beyond) to complete the ride - but the next day you’ll find yourself thinking about what you did 24 hours before, you won't stop thinking back.

It’s the stuff memories are made of.

The 2017 SA Duathlon and LD Duathlon Championships will be hosted by KZN Triathlon on the 2nd of July 2017 at the Midmar Resort.

Please download the full event details from Triathlon SA 
 
Due to the earlier dates and entry closure date for Duathlon World Championships, the 2017 SA Champs will be too late to use for selection for 2017 World Champs.  Triathlon SA has requested that national team selectors use results from the events below to select the team for 2017 Duathlon Worlds:
 
1.            The 2016 Provincial / Regional Duathlon Championship results (Durbanville, April 2016).  
2.            The 2017 SA National Triathlon Championships (Alldam, March 2017).
3.            The 2016 Duathlon World Championships  (Spain, June 2016).

In addition, Duathletes can apply for a slot in the Provincial and / or National teams through credible results obtained during the past 24 months.  As the Province must submit the list to the TSA Office by 28 April 2017, we need to receive applications from athletes by 17:00 on 25 April 2017.
.
Western Cape Duathletes wishing to participate at 2017 Nationals or Worlds must therefore apply for selection at the link below:

 

 
The 2017 SA Duathlon Championships will also be the selection event for the 2018 World Duathlon Championships, taking place in Denmark, early July 2018.

The 2017 SA LD Duathlon Championships will be the selection event for the 2017 LD Duathlon World Championships, taking place in Zofingen, Switzerland, in September 2017.

Salomon Featherbed Trail Run

COELACANTH TRAIL RUN : 15 KM – This is the one to do!

The longer Coelacanth Route will take you along the top of the Western Head where breath taking vistas await; views across to the sheer cliffs of the Eastern Head and out over the Indian Ocean towards Buffalo Bay. Be prepared to be challenged by some hill work as you climb up from sea level to take in the splendour on the ridge line above the Heads. You’ll find well-earned relief on the downhill into Lake Brenton and along the Outeniqua Choo Choo railway bridge to the Finish Line back at the Featherbed Ferry Terminus @ Cruise Cafe.

SEAHORSE TRAIL RUN: 11.0 KM

The shorter Seahorse Route takes a more direct line to the finish, with all its participants being driven to the top of the Western Head by the Featherbed Nature Reserve 4 x 4 truck and seated trailer. This will save your legs the steep, heart pumping, climb from sea level however there is still a fair share of challenging hill work to contend with as you join up with the longer Coelacanth Trail on the ridge line above the Heads. The relief will come as you descend into Lake Brenton and along the Outeniqua Choo Choo railway bridge to the Finish Line back at the Featherbed Ferry Terminus @ Cruise Cafe.

The race will take place on Tuesday 7th July during the Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival.   You have the chance to participate in any of the 3 races on offer this year. A MORNING RUN at 07.30am A MIDDAY RUN at 11.30am & AN AFTERNOON RUN at 15.30pm All races start at the Featherbed Ferry Terminus @ Cruise Cafe with the Ferry Trip across the Lagoon, so make sure you arrive early and don’t miss the boat!

 MORE ABOUT ENDUROS:

Dirtopia has organised ten Enduro events since 2012 and the focus is on the riding and having fun on the trails.

The concept
Based on the successful Mavic Trans Provence concept the idea is to bring riding and the results linked to it back to mountain biking and away from the current endurance-only formats. That said, it is not the idea to make the race highly technical as per downhill racing, but simply to focus the competition on the trails component of the sport. And yes, perhaps your skinny tire 29’er carbon hardtail is perhaps not the best choice of bike, although the course will certainly be rideable on it!

At the Dirtopia Enduro, you’ll still be climbing and even be timed on some of these sections. We will make most of the jeeptracks and roads ‘neutral’ or ‘liaison’ sections. You will still be required to ride these. The overall descent of the race will be more than the uphill.

 

Support
Waterpoint with fruit, nuts etc will be placed at a strategic point to assist with rider support. The beauty of the format is that you can relax a bit at this station and catch your breath before tagging into the next Special Stage.
