The rains during the week caused some concern as to whether the track would be dry enough, but the sun shone and the day was a huge success. There were 60 participants from Kayamandi, Strandfontein, Khayelitsha, Blouberg and Cape Town CBD. A truly broad spectrum of people thus proving that events of this nature were missing. There were four women and the youngest person on the day was 9!
The day started with timed runs to seed everyone which was followed by elimination heats where all the top riders raced against eachother, knocking out the slower riders until there were eventual winners in each category. There were some truly epic battles on show.
Below are the age group results:
1st: Yolanda Ngxgngane from Khayamandi
2nd: Zola Ngxakane from Khayamandi
3rd: Moshane Wanga from Velokhaya
4th: Zenane Anitha from Velokhaya
