THERE’S a new mountain bike race on the South Coast. Experience competitive and challenging MTB routes along the border of KZN and Eastern Cape as well as enjoy the day at the Wild Waves Waterpark with friends and family members. For the professionals, R23 000 in prize money is up for grabs, while amateurs stand a chance of winning spot prizes including hampers, hotel vouchers, spa treatments and bicycle accessories during the lucky draw.

The 40km Classic and 20km intermediate includes mostly raw and wild terrain with typical lush vegetation and beautiful flowers. Also extensive single track, ascents and descents, breathtaking views, portages,switchbacks, river crossings and a new suspension bridge. The 10km fun ride is geared for the younger riders with wider roads along parts of the golf cart track for the acclaimed Wild Coast Sun Golf Course.
