THE Umdoni Municipality has committed itself to assisting the organisers of the MTB challenge that was held in Scottsburgh last week.

The municipality said the joBerg2C and sani2c outdid themselves in the past two events they held in Umdoni.

Umdoni mayor Cllr S. Khwela said they are therefore committing themselves to assisting and supporting these events next year.

“We have been fortunate to have these key international events staged here over the past years, but we have not, until this point, been actively engaged with the organisers,’ said Khwela.

He said they are thrilled to announce that going forward the municipality will go out of its way to work with stakeholders.

MTB events are now part of Umdoni’s flagship events as they have a huge impact on their area he said.

The meeting was also attended by Scottsburgh ratepayers, being represented by William Pienaar.

Pienaar said as the ratepayers’ association and the Umdoni community, they can’t thank the MTB stakeholders enough.

“We are privileged that Scottsburg was chosen for these events.

“Our areas benefit through the extensive marketing value,” said Pienaar.

He said the event should remain in Scottsburgh to improve and sustain the state of the amenities within the area.

Ugu South Coast Tourism and Umdoni Municipality said that with the organisers they will work closely in making Scottsburgh beach the finish of the world longest MTB race.
