Cape Town, South Africa – Local sports marketing specialist, Stillwater Sports is excited to welcome its newest arrival, the ISUZU MTB Festival Cape Town, to its already extensive stable of mountain bike events.

According to Alexa Cunningham, Stillwater Sports MTB Events Manager, the ISUZU MTB Festival will be the ideal family weekend, celebrating all things MTB related.  “The festival will kick off on the Saturday with the ISUZU Enduro Ride, an enduro-type event that will feature two timed sections and consist of a hill climb and descent.  The ISUZU Team Relay is guaranteed to appeal to everyone from families to corporate businesses and MTB/multisport clubs.  ISUZU’s 4×4 Off Road Academy will offer demonstrations and drive experiences, while ISUZU’s MTB Team Coach, Joanna Dobinson will host free skills sessions”.

“Junior MTB enthusiasts can also look forward to a fun-filled weekend like no other,” continues Cunningham.  “In addition to having access to the pump track the entire weekend, they will also be able to take part in the Fedhealth Kids Events that will feature a 500m, 1.5km and 5km race.  On Sunday riders can enjoy a Marathon, Half Marathon and 15km Fun Ride on safe, manicured trails with Table Mountain and Lions Head visible in the distance”.

“ISUZU is proud to be associated with the inaugural ISUZU MTB Festival,” says Mlungisi Nonkonyana, ISUZU Brand Manager.  “We look forward to welcoming families, mountain bikers and 4×4 enthusiasts of all ages, to the Tygerberg Mountain Bike Trails”.
