The 3rd year of the Surval Stof En Teer event will take place on 28 October 2017 in Oudtshoorn. This unique race unites the road and mountain bike disciplines with 4 members in a team – 2 road cyclists and 2 mountain bikers – each covering a distance of 75 km – therefore called “Stof en Teer”.
The race starts with the 2 road cyclists at Smitswinkel with the route taking them through the beautifull village of Schoemanshoek towards the iconic route to the Cango Caves where they turn into the direction of the Swartberg Pass. Just before the pass they will turn left, in the direction of Calitzdorp at Swartberg Manor, where the road cycling team will handover to the mountain bike team.
Families, supporters and cyclists can enjoy the hospitality at Patat, the in-house restaurant at Swartberg Manor.
The mountain bikers will be riding through a private nature resort at the foot of the Swartberg Mountains, turn left into the Latgansvlei valley and ride through working farms with ostriches, tobacco fields and onion seed production areas. After returning to the outskirts of Oudtshoorn, they will travel on the gravel road on the way to Schoemanshoek with the finish-line in a Olive orchard at the Surval Boutique Olive Estate.
At the estate families, supporters and cyclists can enjoy good food and wine at the famous restaurant at Surval. Surval Boutique Olive Estate is the main sponsor of the event with R 30 000 prize money up for grabs in total!
Surval Stof En Teer will be a good preparation for the Double Century taking place at the end of November. Last year’s winning team Alpha Bodyworks have already confirmed that they will be back to defend their title this year.
