I recently had a chat with cycling legend, Robbie McIntosh, to ask him about his 2014 MTB racing plans. He has been very active this year and participated in a number of big league MTB events and plan the same and more for next year.


So, here’s the list of definite events for him, although there are a number of other ones he wishes to do, depending on timing and sponsorships:

23-30 March: ABSA Cape Epic – The race is held over 8 days and includes a time-trial prologue. The route changes every year, and leads aspiring amateur and professional mountain bikers from around the world through approximately 800 kilometres of the unspoilt nature of the Western Cape and up approximately 15 000m of climbing over some of the most magnificent passes in South Africa. Learn more about the race in the Absa Cape Epic Intro video.


25 April – 3 May 2014: The Old Mutual joBerg2c is riding the off-roads less travelled and trails never travelled. It is racing, riding and touring across this magnificent country. It is sharing a passion for mountain biking with those who love riding. Our aim is to provide a journey where the destination is less important than the experience along the way. Entries close on 31 January. Go here for details: Joberg2c

freedom challenge

Mid June:  This is a 2300 km Race Across South Africa (RASA) MOUNTAIN BIKE. It is non- stop and unassisted, starting in Pietermaritzburg in mid-June every year and following South Africa’s Freedom Trail to end in Wellington outside Cape Town.
