Brand new for 2014 in the MTN National MTB Series Driven by NISSAN is Van Gaalen. The Van Gaalen trails have built up quite a reputation over the years as being the hardest event in the NISSAN Trailseeker series. We felt it has graduated to qualify as a National status event for 2014.
Van Gaalen is arguably the hardest mountain bike race in the area but also offers some of the most thrilling and enjoyable handbuilt trails around! Van Gaalen has over the last 6 years built a seemingly endless amount of trails that snakes over the Magalies, through ravines and gorges, along sweet contours, and carves absolutely sick lines along the river banks.
The event will showcase a combination of the best of mountain biking that Van Gaalens has to offer. Spread over two days congestion on route is a thing of the past with the Ultra and Marathon on the Saturday and the Half Marathon and fun races ont he Sunday, you can opt in to do both days and truly explore the Magalies area!
