About Angora MTB Classic
Something brand new at the 2018
SAMIL Angora MTB Classic....
Date : 1 September 2018
New Route : 140 km (See map under images)
Route Information :
Early morning fresh Karoo air will be inhaled at 4h45 to start 5h00 sharp. Very appropriate to practice a longish distance before K2C in three weeks time. This route has been plotted in such a way that all categories of elevation and abilities in the saddle are challenged to extreme at certain places.
Come test yourself and enjoy something different in 4 Karoo farming districts namely Jansenville, Graaff-Reinet, Aberdeen and Klipplaat. A very scenic yet challenging route with various forms of terrain passing through game farms where kudu, sable, eland and other game can be seen up close. Various small stock breeds of Karoo farms are also to be seen. On route you will pass the meteorite site - Kalkkop.
The route is mostly a non cell phone signal area and therefore we encourage partner teams. There will be abundant water points with support and two way radios. 2 Spectator/supporter points on the route.
This route is definitely a step or two above the norm and is therefore excellent preparation for the Karoo to Coast race.
Come and experience an awesome MTB race in the heart of the Karoo with a heap of farmer's hospitality thrown in!
This annual event is well worth attending even if not participating in the MTB race.
The event is held on behalf of Dutch Reformed Church, Huis Welverdiend Old Age Home, Jansenville and Beyond Tourism.
