Joberg2C has become a fixture on the South African mountain biking calendar and will resume this weekend following a two-year pause, due to the pandemic.
The event remains unique in several ways. It is rider-focused, taking participants on a journey through the heart of South Africa, from Johannesburg to the Indian Ocean. Organisers have also teamed up with communities along the way, allowing them to assist in putting together a world-class event for riders.
"It was 12-years ago, when Farmer Glen of the Sani2C had a dream of riding from Johannesburg to the sea. He had a chat with Gary Green of Berg and Bush fame. I got pulled in and used my background in advertising to take it on as a proper project," says organiser Craig Wapnick.
