- DAY 1 -
DAY 1, This is the tougher of the 2 days purely due to each race distance having its own signature climb. Takes you away from the comfort of the race village Start and Finish in the center of Clarens Square towards but not to Golden Gate Nature Reserve. The trails are well marked and well groomed for riding pleasure. You will meander through private farms and reserves along the little Caledon river and loop back towards the village through the foothills of the Maluti. This is where riders are truly spoiled by unparalleled views in every direction, none more welcoming than that of the village of Clarens in the distance. We make sure that the last half of the race is always the most rewarding with exhilarating single track and descents.
