We have a few competitions every year in Oudtshoorn. One in particular is the Cape Pioneer Trek, which starts on Buffelsdrift Game Lodge. This is a tough and exciting race to compete in or just to attend as a visitor. This major event is taking place this coming weekend, with the prologue on 20 October 2013 and the official start on 21 October 2013.
“And you thought 2012 was the best yet? BETTER HOLD TIGHT”
According to the organizers this year will surpass the route of 2012. The Cape Pioneer Race Guide states that major changes were implemented on the 2012 route and this year they will build on those improvements. Months of meticulous planning and track building has resulted in this, the best mountain biking available in South Africa. The key lies in finding that delicate balance between terrain diversity, exhilarating riding and pioneering spirit.
Here is to the pioneering spirit, we are excited to host this event and experience these athletes in action.
