Arabella Challenge 2Day Mountain Bike Race

25 August 2013

Article by: Tiaan Pretorius

The Mountain Bike event was a 2 day stage event with the route being 37km on day 1 & 45km on day 2. Riders entered as individuals with the event giving social riders the opportunity to experience a stage event under fun and non pressurized circumstances. Two water points on the route provided sustenance for the riders and a chance to rest for a few minutes before continuing on their way.
As my 2nd mountain bike race ever and also my very 1st 2day race this was what i needed to convince myself that I LOVE MTB-ing!
I finished 9th overall from the 120 riders.

Once again thanks to 32Gi for fueling me through this fantastic event and giving me that edge to keep powering through the valleys of Kleinmond mountains.
Thanks Virgin Active for being my official health and wellness partner and Cape Auto Centre and Tuna Brands for my racing apparel.

Also a special mention must go out to Frank Smuts that besides just holding my bike on this photo really helped this rookie mountain biker (myself) through this race and educating me with this new sport!
