PRESS RELEASE – JBAY WIND FARM MTB CLASSIC- 2017
ENTER NOW FOR THE JBAY WIND FARM MTB CLASSIC
Exciting route changes bound to attract top riders.
(JEFFREYS BAY) – Entries are open for the JBay Wind Farm MTB Classic on 22 July 2017. The event forms part of the JBay Winterfest and will showcase some of the finest trails in the surrounding area.
Now in its fifth year, the event will offer something for riders of a range of fitness and skill levels. With the start (and finish) at Kabeljouws there will be three routes, 25km, 50km and 85km.
The short route will be the same as in 2016, with the 50km marathon featuring a few changes including one or two additional climbs. It is in the 85-kilometre ultra where seriously fit riders will be in for a real treat though. Traditionally an ideal shakedown training ride ahead of Transbaviaans in August, the route will be technical and tough and, almost completely different from previous years with a lot of new singletrack. (Watch the local press for a full route reveal soon).
There will once again be R50 000 worth of prices up for grabs.
R10 000 first prize for both the male and female 85km ultra category winners.
85km Route R300,00 + day license R45,00
50km Route R225,00 + day license R45,00
25km Route R120,00 + day license R45,00
