About the Race
The Bestmed Cycle4Cansa MTB Classic consists of a 25km circuit-based route which riders complete either once or twice.
This means participants in the feature 50km race complete two circuits of the short course.
The course offers an amazing experience, both from a route and scenic point of view.
Participants traverse large sections of the resort's grounds, including a palm plantation and the renowned Gary Player and Lost City golf courses. They also go through the neighbouring Letsatsing Game Reserve.
The route is absolutely stunning and the game rangers keep the elephants and rhinos to one side to allow our riders to pass through the heart of the reserve.
But it is not all game viewing and leisurely pedalling. This route delivers a nice sting in the tail, ending with a good technical section on the Sun City motocross track before riders hit the tar for the finish at the Sun City parking lot.
The half-distance or single-circuit race is also suitable for children older than 12 who want to enjoy a family ride with their parents.
All entrants in both the road and MTB events receive free entrance into the Valley of Waves on both days and Sun International will be in charge of entertainment in the Valley. It will certainly be a worthwhile day out for the entire family.
