Piket-bo-berg Trails is home to the U Stage Race taking place from 20 – 22 October 2017. Riders will be able to enjoy two days of unforgettable authentic technical mountain biking with the addition of the Prologue on Friday afternoon.  Do not be fooled by the distance on each of the days  – you will work hard for every single kilometre, but you will love every moment of it!

 The Route

Prologue – (6km Trail, 137m Elevation) It’s a proper mix of ferocious climbs and hair-raising descents (it’s the only kind we have).  Expect bespoke trails and foul language and afterglow faces and proudly emptied CBC beers!

Day 1   (48,1km Trail, 1298m Elevation) Also includes a fun section through the Pine Forrest with a couple of bridges, berms and jumps to spice things up! After completing the full 48.1kms on day one, riders will return to the race village to rest and recuperate for the next day.

Day 2 – (49,5km Trail, 1293m Elevation) Will be spent exploring the multitude of trails on Mouton’s Valley, owned by Farmer Eric Starke, which include loads of challenging climbs, rock gardens, berms and switchbacks. Your efforts will, however, be rewarded when you reach the highest point possible on the mountain with the most beautiful views, including Table Mountain and the West Coast coastline on a clear day.
