Race categories, Entry fees and Race times

Course and distances

Provisional Route:

Official and Compulsory Practice:   There will be an official practice on Saturday  16 March 2019, from 6:30 to 7:30.     It is compulsory for Nippers and Sprogs to practice the course.  This is for their safety – to give parents and riders the opportunity to identify which obstacles riders are not competent to ride and to ensure that they do not get lost en route !

If you wish to ride at Rhebokskloof on any day before the 16th of March, it will not be part of this event and you need to purchase an entry ticket from Rhebokskloof and will be governed by their terms and conditions.   Rhebokskloof have kindly agreed to allow free access on Friday afternoon 14:00 to 18:00 for bikes with event boards.
