WCMTB XCO#1 : Course map

Although some of you may remember the 2nd Rhebokskloof event last year, the course this year has some surprises. Gratefully we won’t be climbing that massive hill that leads up to the single track. This year the course is also running in the opposite direction too with quite a nastly little climb up to the single track so jostling for a good start on that first climb may just make a difference. Then it’s back down and around the dam with lots of passing opportunity and then up into the hills before dropping back down to the valley floor with a sharp turn up through the gum trees and some more single track climbing. Your next stop is the feed zone and then a short single track into jeep track climb and drop down back to the start just below the dam.

4.95km per lap for everyone apart from the Nipper and Sprogs who will be riding a shortened route.

Conditions: the course is dry and dusty and sketchy in parts. A dribble of rain is forecast for Thursday, but this is unlikely to change the course. Thorns are aplenty around the course so please ensure that your Stans is topped up.
