Drak MTB Xperience 2011:

After weeks (in fact months) of heavy rain the gods smiled on us and race day, and luckily the two days before that were beautiful sunny days in the mountains. This after having had a horrendous cloudburst of over 100mm of rain in less than half an hour on the Thursday before the race. Bridges were washed away; tracks next to the river eroded; pine needles were strewn on the forest single track and springs gushed water all along the route. Thanks to the local farmers and those in charge of the routes (including Sani Spoors) these issues were rectified and according to all who rode the various distances, the race was a great success.

Over 300 riders enjoyed the various distances on offer and the winners in the Classic 40k race had the following to say about the race:
 
….Andrew Hill scorched around the tough course in 01:52:14 (some 10 minutes ahead of his rivals) and said, "that must be one of the best tracks I have ridden, on a par with top races such as Karkloof"

….Amy Jane Mundy won in a time of 02:22:47 and said "WOW !!! What an amazing event. A last minute descion to make the trip up to take part in the Drak Experience was the best decision ever made. Having ridden and experienced the trails of Sani Spoors a couple of times I had an idea of what lay ahead, but man was I surprised to find that the guys had added on even more and more and more ! It was like a never ending dream.... Every inch of the course was amazing, the single tracks were never ending, the tracks well cut, flowing and challenging at times. The marking was excellent and the variety in terrain just perfect. The organisers really put every effort in to make sure it was a pleasurable experience for all. The water tables were well stocked, with iced cold water nogal! The course was really one in a million and I congratulate all that were involved. This race is sure to grow, and I look forward to riding it again next year."

High praise indeed from these top riders - but due payback for the organisers of this exclusive and high quality race. Come and taste the delicious Sani Spoors trails anytime (www.sanispoors.com) and make sure you don't miss out on these top class river, forest and cattle single tracks next year.
