  4. Should the substitute participant not have their own RaceTec chip, they will be required to purchase one.
  5. Entrants may NOT allow anyone else to use the number allocated to them. If you do so, the participant will be disqualified and the entrant will be suspended from participating in future events. The race number is the organiser’s link to all the relevant contact details and information should you be involved in an accident. It is therefore vital that the information and person is matched correctly.
  6. Merchandise orders and chip purchases are not transferable.

  4. Select the correct category.
  5. Enter the details of the person withdrawing and select the relevant person’s record (based on their date of birth).
  6. Download a consent letter for the person withdrawing to complete. If you lose this letter, you can log in once your entry is saved and download the letter again.
  7. If you are entering as a tandem, you can enter your tandem partner at the same time as yourself if you have a cancellation for your tandem partner as well.
  8. If your tandem partner is already entered into the event, you can add their details to your consent letter so that we can link the two of you as a tandem entry.
  9. Pay the substitution fee of R260 per person by credit card. If you prefer to pay by cheque, you can select the option to ‘Pay later’. The next screen will give you the manual payment instructions. Please note that there is no option to pay by EFT.

Fairtree Capital Simonsberg Contour MTB Stage Race

Fairtree Capital has confirmed that it will become the title sponsor of the inaugural Simonsberg Contour, a brand new 2 day mountain bike stage race in Stellenbosch, set to take place on 6 & 7 February 2016. The ‘Contour’ has been created to continue the development of, and expose, the incredible network of singletrack trails on the Simonsberg mountain. With more than 20km of mountain singletrack connecting more than 10 wine estates, the region is set to become a hotspot for mountain bike trail riders.

In terms of routing, a major trail build is underway. The Simonsberg is known for its general steepness, so it is quite fitting that the Contour’s name addresses this challenge. Dirtopia’s trail building activities has already unlocked many farms with more accessible contour trails, making it possible for riders to enjoy the stunning vistas that the region offers.
While the final route will be launched later this year, riders can expect daily stages of 55-60km, each with around 1500m of elevation. Race director Meurant Botha says that the emphasis will be on a fun, trail experience, a perfect season opener for the stage race season.

Further, the event is run in partnership with the Simonsberg Conservancy, representing 24 farms around the Simonsberg mountain, including a host of Stellenbosch’s premier wine estates. In terms of the deal, the Conservancy receives an annual financial contribution to beef up administration as well as becoming a shareholder in the event.
 

How to enter:
Entries are open and is limited to 500 riders. Website: www.dirtopia.co.za

Venues:
Hosted by the region’s wine estates, riders can look forward to an exciting harvest-time wine route experience close to the Simonsberg Conservancy.

Fairtree Capital has supported the Simonsberg Trail system for more than a year and one week after the mountain bike stage race, the inaugural Trail Run two-day event will take place on 11 & 12 Febr 2017.

The event will start and finish at Delvera farm where runners will be treated to breakfast and lunch, kiddies entertainment and a wonderful area to relax after their run, with showers and massage service.    Two routes will be on offer for the two-day stage race, the long route being around 25km and the other a 12km route.  On Sunday 12 Febr another route has been added for fun - all welcome to join the 7km route on the last day.

The Fairtree Contour events have been created to continue the development of routes and expose the incredible network of single-track trails on the Simonsberg Mountain. With over 25km of mountain single-track, connecting more than 10 wine estates, the region is set to become a hotspot for mountain bike trail riders.

Dirtopia has spent the last 3 years developing new routes on Delheim and Muratie wine estates. These trails are now operated in partnership with the landowners and the Greater Simonsberg Conservancy being the primary beneficiary. The conservancy represents more than 20 farms around the mountain and is currently focused on a multi-million rand alien clearing project to return large tracts of the mountain to fynbos and renosterveld.

There is no better time to be out in the winelands as harvest season will be in full swing in surrounding vineyards.

Each participant who enters for the 12km or 25km will receive a FREE t-shirt and bottle of wine plus coffee, breakfast snack and daily lunch buffet. The 7.5km will receive coffee and a breakfast snack.

Live timing for all entrants. Medals to all finishers. Massage services, kiddies entertainment areas and great facilities like showers & beer and wine stalls at the start/finish.

Good refreshment stations will be fully stocked with cold drinks and a wide range of savoury snacks and fruit.

BATRUN Trail Run
Trail Run - Night
  • 30 Km
Gardens Tech Rugby Club
For more Information, visit:
 
The Batrun is held annually on a late February or early March night around full moon for those that enjoy the magic of the mountain at night with a group of like-minded folks. Non-competitive, party-mood, good time to be had by all. 
 
The event is the only night run/walk within Table Mountain National Park. The challenge of this event is to ascend the three summits(Devil’s Peak, Maclear’s Beacon and Lion’s Head) in an atmosphere that exists on the mountain at night, above the city. 
 
The first BATRUN was in 2002 and started from V&A.  A small group of nutters arranged by Michelle Santilhano set out to conquer Cape Town's three peaks in the dead of the night. The mist came down after Maclears and only a handful of folk lead by Christo Steyn did Lion's Head (in zero viz), arriving back at the V&A as the sun was rising.
 
In 2003, a more "organised" approach lead by Andre Proctor and Andrea Pulfrich, but again only small party starting and ending at Kloof Nek. 
 
2016 will again see a slight change in proceedings with the race moving its start/finish venue to the Gardens Tech Rugby Club situated at the foot of Table Mountain.
 

The 2017 Entry fee is R695

www.dirtopia.co.za

Venue:  Uitkyk Wine Estate, R44 Stellenbosch
Start time:  09h00 & registration opens at 08h00

 

Enduro Riding:  Have you done an Enduro event?  Then you know what it is about!  If not, then here is a summary: riders get timed only on certain sections, which make a very social event, especially at the refreshment station where they re-group. The atmosphere is relaxed with no rush anywhere, except when you gun it between check points!

                                Total distance of riding not so relevant as riders ride to special stages in their own time and the timed stages are more like downhill racing, although all type of riders can attempt it.  Protective gear recommended.

 

Timing:                 Have to own an Amarider Trail Tag. R100 or take a yearly Amarider membership of R225 and a Tag is included!  Watch out for the TAG POINTS at the beginning & end of each stage.

 

Timing will be managed in real-time with @trailtag and riders will check in and out of the Special stages. This means that riders will enter special stages 1 by 1, so no bunfight to get trail position on the singletrack.

Pre-entry cost: R330 for non-members and R300 for Amarider members for one day.  Please note that ONLY pre-entries will be accepted! Includes permit & refreshment station.

General: Product prizes from Leatt, Csixx, Giant & Falke for top three male & female and also Vet category.  Medals to all finishers. Coffee will be for sale from early morning with something to eat afterwards.

Join the DIRTOPIA ALL MOUNTAIN ENDURO group on Facebook to stay updated on all events and info.

MORE ABOUT ENDUROS:

The first event was held at Dirtopia MTB Festival, Greyton in December’12
 

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. We will make most of the jeeptracks and roads ‘neutral’ or ‘liaison’ sections with singletrack downhills the timed stages. The overall descent of the race will be more than the uphill.

The Simonsberg trails will offer lots of fun riding – four/five stages planned.  Updates to be given closer to the event date. Join the Facebook page!

 

Support
Waterpoint with fruit, Red Bull, nuts & jellies etc will be placed at a strategic point 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.

 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.
