Gauteng mountain bikers will tackle the third round of the 2016 Nissan TrailSeeker Series on Saturday, which for the first time will be held at Legends MX adventure centre east of Pretoria.
The event forms part of the venue’s plans to open mountain bike-specific trails for year-round use. The new venue offers fresh challenges and riders in all four distances can expect stimulating race routes. The marathon includes 592m of accumulated elevation. The region between Pretoria and Bronkhorstspruit isn’t particularly hilly, but the route designers have ensured optimal use of the available gradient to deliver as balanced a course as possible. The half-marathon includes 353m of climbing and shares the first part of the marathon course, while the Fun Race and Fun Ride both take in some of the best sections of the Legends MX mountain bike trails. As usual, the race village will cater well for spectators and offer a relaxing environment for riders and supporters before the start and after the finish.
Entries will be available until prior to the start at www.trailseekerseries.co.za.
