As a first time event on the KZNMTB calendar the event drew a modest field of 300 riders which turned out to be the perfect number for the organisers who suspected they were sitting on some great MTB territory, but needed to put their tracks to test.

The race was an early starter in anticipation of the summer heat, with the 45k starting at 07:15am, the 22k 10 minutes later, and then another 10 minutes until the 10k.

The first 4k's were on farm road and included a steep climb allowing the field to spread out before hitting the first of the single track. Long sections of fast and flowing interspersed with technical and tricky were common descriptions of the course. If the number of happy looking faces crossing the finish line was anything to go by the course was really well received.

"We aimed to strike a balance between flowing and challenging, and judging by the reaction of the competitive riders and social riders we did just that," commented race director Andrew Booth "For our next event we will be working hard on the single track down the Cumberland stream which could not be included due to the damage done by a big storm in January. There are improvements to be made, our aim is to take this one day event based just outside PMB from strength to strength." Booth said.

Maweni MTB has replaced what used to be the Cumberland Classic, however the race is now quite different with a new start venue (Maweni Trail Centre) and some additional single track. Make sure you don't miss out on future editions of this race.
