2020 EAST RAND MTB CLASSIC
4 April 2020
The MTB event kicks off at 08h00 on Saturday and consists of a 25km track which riders complete either once or twice. Click here to view the Route Profile & Map
Riders will once again get to experience the excitement of riding in the shadow of the aircraft on the grounds of OR Tambo International Airport.
It’s urban mountain biking at its best and it’s so close and easily accessible for riders from all over Gauteng.
There is just one technical drop-off on the 25km track where riders have the option to either take the dive or use the chicken run on the side.
The track is essentially made up of three sections. The first bit is through a forest, then round the dam and suburbs, and finally a seven-kilometre flat section right next to the runway – all interlinked by pavement rides.
The tree section is absolute bliss. It consists of 6km of winding forest with more than enough room to overtake and slightly downhill – so it’s nice and fast!
