Vast sections of the Lost City golf course as well as the Gary Player course and some new trails inside the Letsateng Game Reserve have been made available to the Bestmed Cycle4Cansa MTB Championship, which takes place at Sun City on 25 August this year.
The Cycle4Cansa MTB event is part of the Bestmed Cycle4Cansa weekend cycling festival, which is presented by Optimum Financial Services on 25 and 26 August.
“Our event survey year on year shows that riders really love the fast and flowing golf course sections, so we approached Sun City management about this at start of the year and we’re thankful that they have obliged,” said race organiser Mauritz Meyer.
The route will also use more terrain inside the Letsateng Game Reserve, including a stunning new 7km trail section, and avoid the 4km section on the other side of the main road opposite Sun City.
The complete updated route map will soon be available on the event site www.cansalostcity.co.za.
Distances on offer are 25km and 50km and all riders receive free entry into the Valley of Waves on race day.
Riders can enter on-line at www.cansalostcity.co.za.
While the Saturday is focussed on mountain-biking, the Sunday’s Road Classic offers distances of 103km and 70km.
The road race route is fast and flat and received stunning feedback following the return to the traditional route in 2016. Because it takes place on the Sunday the roads are quiet and perfectly suited to present a mass participation race in safe surroundings.
The Bestmed Cycle4Cansa Road Championship is a premier seeding event for the Cape Town Cycle Tour and funds raised through the event are donated to the Cancer Association of South Africa.
The casino resort offers convenient and safe parking as well as a variety of family entertainment options once the racing is done, including free entry into the Valley of Waves.
