Hartenbos MTB Challenge 26th Dec 18

After racing the Stillbay MTB race “Windpomp Jerrie” and finishing 2nd on the 50km I
entered the Hartenbos MTB challenge 70km Elite, The route is very much like the first stage
of the Cape Pioneer so I hear from the riders that have competed.

Hartenbos Start

The start of the race was very slow until the first section of single track I think the Christmas lunch
the day before was playing a part.

Hartenbos 2018 Route
The race split with the front 6 Riders getting a gap on myself and one other rider at about 45km
I really enjoyed this route with the perfect balance of single track and gravel road.
