The Table Mountain Farmers pulled off another successful Cumberland Super Classic, which was enjoyed by 1200 participants. The classic provided some really exciting racing up front with David Leiman just managing to out sprint Andrew Hill to take line honors.

The ladies race was just as exiting with Shale Exelby and Jean Hackland racing neck and neck right until the finish with Shale winning by 10 seconds.

The intermediate ride took the riders along some spectacular scenery with Dani Jensen crossing the line in first place. Alan Hatherly winning the Sub Junior race ahead of Brandon Venter and the first girl, Savannah Schuit in a brilliant 3rd place.

While some family members opted to picnic under the Acacia trees others rode the enjoyable 10km fun ride or jogged along side their children riding or scooting along the kiddies 2km ride.

With a picturesque venue and single track that is raved about by the classic riders, it is not surprising that this event has become so popular with elite athletes and with families to enjoy a day out. Despite the race not having a sponsor, the farmers managed to provide a well organized, hassle free event that has been raved about by many.
