You’re in for a treat. Already known for the quality of its route, the Cape Pioneer Trek has stepped it up a level yet again. The ninth edition of the race sees significant changes, including a point-to-point format, a coastal start in Mossel Bay and back-to-back ascents of the formidable Swartberg Pass.
All the old favourites are back (though you’ve never seen them like this before), mixing it up with some brand-new innovations that will get the heart pumping and the adrenalin flowing.
Never content to rest, the Dryland route design team continue to raise the bar for international mountain bike stage racing, right here on the tip of Africa. Take a tour through each stage below for a taste of what’s in store for 2017.
