Last weekend saw Absolute Motion Team teaming up with PSG to host one of the most picturesque mountain bike races in KZN. The race featured fun and challenging single-track across three distances of 10km, 20km and 40km.

The terrain was varied through the Hilton College forests, guaranteeing a fun ride for mountain bikers of all ages and abilities. The race was a perfect opportunity to explore exciting new trails. They introduced a brilliant new way of rewarding riders who may be fast in certain areas but just can’t get onto the podium. It was a great way to encourage riders but Brennan Anderson still managed to have an exceptional ride by achieving a podium finish. He came third in a time of 1.45.49.
