  • All Mountain Enduro

    All Mountain Enduro

    All day
    03/09/17
    d3_10526

    To celebrate the coming of Spring, we’ll have a fun day on Klapmutskop – join us for four, perhaps 5 stages.

    Venue:  Dirtopia Trail Centre, Delvera Farm, R44, Stellenbosch
    Start time:  09h00 & registration opens at 08h00

    Enduro Riding: Have you done an Enduro event?  Then you know what it is about!  If not, then here is a summary: riders get timed only on certain sections, which make a very social event, especially at the refreshment station where they re-group. The atmosphere is relaxed with no rush anywhere, except when you gun it between check points!
    Total distance of riding not so relevant as riders ride to special stages in their own time and the timed stages are more like downhill racing, although all type of riders can attempt it.  Protective gear recommended.

    Timing: Have to own an Amarider Trail Tag. R100 or take a yearly Amarider membership of R225 and a Tag is included!  Watch out for the TAG POINTS at the beginning & end of each stage.

    Timing will be managed in real-time with @trailtag and riders will check in and out of the Special stages. This means that riders will enter special stages 1 by 1, so no bunfight to get trail position on the singletrack.
    Pre-entry cost: R375 for non-members and R350 for Amarider members for one day.  Please note that ONLY pre-entries will be accepted! Includes permit & refreshment station.
    General: Product prizes from Leatt, SRAM,  Csixx, Giant & Falke for top three male & female and other categories, should there be enough entries per age group.  Medals to all finishers. Trail Centre open all day for snacks & drinks, Dirtopia Café will be open for breakfast & lunch. No private picnics please. Coffee will be available from early morning too.
    Join the DIRTOPIA ALL MOUNTAIN ENDURO group on Facebook to stay updated on all events and info.
    MORE ABOUT ENDUROS:

    The concept
    Based on the successful Mavic Trans Provence concept the idea is to bring riding and the results linked to it back to mountain biking and away from the current endurance-only formats. That said, it is not the idea to make the race highly technical as per downhill racing, but simply to focus the competition on the trails component of the sport. And yes, perhaps your skinny tire 29’er carbon hardtail is perhaps not the best choice of bike, although the course will certainly be rideable on it!
    At the Dirtopia Enduro, you’ll still be climbing. We will make most of the jeeptracks and roads ‘neutral’ or ‘liaison’ sections with singletrack downhills the timed stages. The overall descent of the race will be more than the uphill.
    Support
    Waterpoint with fruit, Red Bull, nuts & jellies etc will be placed at a strategic point (Pepper Tree) to assist with rider support. The beauty of the format is that you can relax a bit at this station and catch your breath before tagging into the next Special Stage.

    2017 BESTMED JOCK TOUR PRESENTED BY RUDY PROJECT

    Jock Tour new logo

    3 DAYS – 3 STAGES – 304KM – 7200M ASCENT

    The arduous Bestmed Jock Tour, presented by Rudy Project, is set to occur from September 15 – 17. It covers 304KM and a daunting 7200 metres of vertical ascent over three days.

    It’s important to note that this event is not a challenge for the average rider. It constitutes the first event in South Africa that is mirrored on the Classic European Alpine road stage races, such as the Haute Route. There is no tougher three-day challenge on a road bike anywhere else on the African continent.

    THE 2017 STAGES:

    STAGE 1: FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 15

    Start: 13h00 Individual Time Trial; Nelspruit to Kaapsehoop;
    Distance: 26.93km; Total ascent: 1200m

    The first stage is a 26.93km hill climb time trial from Nelspruit to Kaapsehoop. Although only 26.93km in length, the course rises by 1200 metres between Nelspruit and Kaapmuiden.

    STAGE 2: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16

    Start: 07h30 Nelspruit to White River via the Kruger Airport Road/Sabie and back to Nelspruit;

    Distance: 140km; Total ascent: 2900m

    The second stage is the existing 140km Jock Classique route, which Jock Tour riders will have to complete in one go, without the luxury of the breakfast and lunch stops which the Classique riders have at White River and Sabie respectively.

    This stage takes riders from Nelspruit out on the N4 towards Sabie, before turning right onto the Brondal road onto White River. From White River riders take on the road to Sabie and then back onto Nelspruit. This stage offers 2900 metres of climbing. The notable climbs on this stage are Heidel Eggs, Spitskop and the Long Tom Pass.

    STAGE 3: SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 17

    Start: 06h30 Nelspruit to Kaapmuiden via Boulders/Barberton and back to Nelspruit
    Distance: 
    138km; Total ascent: 3100m


    Stage 3 takes place over 136km on the traditional Jock Classique route, starting in Nelspruit, going out on the N4 towards Komatipoort before turning right into the Boulders reserve for the back-breaking Boulders ascent and onto Kaapmuiden. From Kaapmuiden the Tour takes on the undulating road to Barberton and then onto Nelspruit, with Hilltop constituting the final climb of the Tour before riders drop down into Nelspruit to finish back at the Mbombela Stadium.
    The total rise on the final stage is 3100 metres.

    The day kicks off with the 1.5km or 3km swim in the beautiful Clanwilliam dam, one of the best water-sport destinations in the Western Cape. The swim is followed by the duathlon (5km run/20km cycle/2.5km run) and biathlon (5km run/20km cycle) where participants put their speed and endurance to the test through the varied and challenging terrain. The main event, which opens the triathlon season for most athletes, is a sprint triathlon (800m swim/20km cycle/5km run) and a crowd favourite with many participants travelling nationally to compete. All athletes can compete individually or as part of a team in a relay. The younger kids can look forward to the FitKids challenge (1km run, 200m swim, 1km run) and the Run for Fun (1km).
