Die Burger MTB Challenge

Die Burger 2015 - MOST SCENIC ROUTES FOR ALL LEVEL MOUNTAIN BIKERS

Die Burger MTB Challenge will take place for the tenth year in 2015 in Stellenbosch on Sunday 2 August and is expected to hit a record amount of 5000 riders. The event, which is renowned for its challenging and picturesque wineland routes, will be held in association with the Simonsberg Conservancy and will boast six scenic mountain bike routes to cater for all levels of riding. For the second year riders will have the option to participate in the 50km route which leads to the south-eastern part of this town.  This route will be an extension of the popular 30km route and although it is only 8km longer than the 42km, it is a much easier route! Riders should not be fooled by the distances. Meurant Botha of Dirtopia, who has been designing and maintaining mountain bike trails for over fifteen years, says that the routes will pass through more than 50 farms in the area, giving riders the opportunity to tackle some of the best and most beautiful trails in the country. At the finish line there will be kiddies entertainment, food & drink, medals to all finishers, and make sure you stay for prize giving & the lucky draw where a bike can be won.
