SA DH National #1
It’s racing time again, with the first of the 2012 SA National DH series kicking off in Cape Town on 11 & 12 February. Contermanskloof bike haven will once again play host to the first race of the season and with all of the new teams being formed at the end of 2011 it promises to be another great event…
The Contermanskloof farm has become synonymous with mountainbiking in Cape Town and rightly so, as it has previously hosted the 2011 DH SA Champs and is home to some spectacular cross country and trail routes. Other exiting events include the ‘Lake Jump’ event last year, but the focus once again is on the DH community who will entertain the crowds and challenge each other on this testing course. Proudly hosted by the Western Cape DH Club and Cycling South Africa, it promises to be a good start to the 2012 DH season.
How to get there:
Take the N7 towards Malmsberry and then take the Vissershok turn off to your right (gap in the island). Follow Vissershok road to the 4 way intersection. At the intersection turn right into Contermanskloof road. For those people coming from Durbanville you can also go along the Fissershoek Road but you will turn left at the 4 way intersection into Contermanskloof road, the entrance to the Venue is 2km from the 4way intersection on your left hand side and will be sign posted.
