Unique Hybrid Track Winter Series to take place in Oudtshoorn

Hybrid Track Winter Series

This unique Hybrid Track Winter Series will take place at the Oudtshoorn Oval Track on 8 July and 22 July 2018 respectively.

The Hybid Track format of racing will take your fitness to the next level and is a mixture of track cycling and MTB on a dirt oval track. In other words, you will be racing track cycling events on your MTB on a dirt oval track. This concept is safe, spectator friendly, and exiting. At the end of the series all riders that completed the series will receive a special finisher’s medal and the overall category winners will receive a special trophy.

This unique way of racing was introduced to riders two years ago by Jakhals Events in collaboration with Eden Cycling. Eden does not have a cycling track, and therefore the idea of Hybrid Track Racing was born.

Several track races are being raced for eg. Individual TT, Pursuits, Scratch Races, Points and the most exciting one for the spectators – The Devil. The Devil gets the hind really takes the riders out of their comfort zone and spectators to the point of their seats. Every lap is a sprint to the line and the last riders gets called off – eventually leaving two riders to sprint for the gold and silver.
