This weekend sees the SA Xterra Champs happening in Grabouw, situated in the Western Cape atop the Sir Lowry’s Pass which is a mountain paradise for the outdoor enthusiast.
For the Xterra athlete, Grabouw offers the opportunity to mountain bike in widely varying conditions. From gravel fire roads to rough jeep track and technically challenging single track, pine plantation to Cape Fynbos. Surface conditions are also varied, from ragged rocky conditions, pine needle covered trail, loose gravel and of course the ubiquitous sand! Grabouw is NOT flat, you will need to have your climbing legs with you and you will need your descending skills fine tuned. It is, after all, the South Africa Xterra Championship forming part of the Xterra World Circuit!
Good luck to all the athletes taking part.
