THE JBay Triple Crown is an exciting new development by the organisers of the JBay Wind Farm MTB Classic, which forms part of the JBay Winterfest this July.

The challenge is made up of three separate Strava segments.

Two of these are on private land and is open to all riders who register.

There are three segments, the first being down near Aston Bay at the Seekoei River along the purpose-built singletrack that used to form part of the Ultra Marathon in the early days of the JBay Wind Farm MTB Classic. This segment is 3.35km, flat and fast.

Featuring man-made wooden bridges and berms, the Seekoei River section is a special treat for riders.

The second runs for 5.98km behind the Lifestyle Centre in Jeffreys Bay.

The third segment is tight and technical and should also ride fast over 4.75km out at the Zuurbron Bike Park, near Hankey.

The Zuurbron segment forms part of the 2018 85km Ultra Marathon route, while the segment near the lifestyle centre will form part of all three – 25, 50 and 85k – routes of the JBay Wind Farm MTB Classic on Saturday, 14th July 2018.

Full details of the segments are available through the event’s Facebook page and on Strava.
