Multiple cycle tour champion Anriëtte Schoeman is set to defend her title at the JBay Wind Farm MTB Classic on July 16.

“I keep on coming back to this race. I absolutely love the festive vibe and the fantastic route layout. The route is one of the most fun days you can have locally,” says Schoeman.

Having been increased to R10 000 for the first man and woman to cross the finish line, the prize purse is also a huge draw card.

Schoeman describes the route as “a mix of singletrack, gravel roads, some proper climbs and loads of scenery.

“For me the best part of the race is where we ride through the Jeffreys Bay Wind Farm. Riding literally underneath the spectacular, gigantic wind turbines is something very special. Only once you ride so close to them do you realise how massive and fascinating they are.”

The Jeffreys Bay Wind Farm is the title sponsor of the JBay Wind Farm MTB Classic – the race has traversed the farm since 2014 and carries the unique distinction of being the only MTB event in Africa to run through a wind farm.

The three routes - 25km fun ride, 50km half-marathon and 85km ultra - will offer something for all skill and fitness levels.

The race will start and finish at the Kabeljous Hub.

Limited entries for the JBay Wind Farm MTB Classic are available at www.jbaysports.co.za.
