 General info on Schools League

The Spur Schools MTB League is a series of races catering for School Pupils in the greater Port Elizabeth and East London area. In the absence of many races actually giving recognition towards younger riders, it is nice to see the Spur Schools MTB League is becoming highly contested and well attended by what is currently SA’s proving grounds for future MTB stars.

Qualify to represent the Eastern Cape at the National final taking place at Bekker School in Gauteng!  Before riders get selected for the National final they will fight it out in regional finals both East London and Port Elizabeth.  That will be followed with a Provincial Final for final selection.  Trophies will be handed out to best schools at both district and Provincial final.
