So what is there to look forward to at 3 Towers?
1st Tower – “Increases must fall” There will be zero increase on the entries this year! Big thanks to Malalane Toyota for this. This means you will have some extra bucks to blow on a bike or to buy your lovely wife some flowers to make up for the weekend away. Learn from me, buy your wife a bike and then you can do as much riding as you want, as long as she is with. I would much rather share a tent with my wife than some stinky dude!
2nd Tower – We have endless new trails in Mpumalanga. Now that the tar roads are full of potholes, every ride is like klapping it down the Downhill Course. We have really been inspired by the massive holes and we have tried to recreate it on our trails. It has been a very difficult task due to the fact, that it means we must not work to get it like that? Jokes aside, plenty new ideas for new single track. 2016 Race trail was pretty much perfect but like I said, 10th birthday means we will need to add something special!
3rd Tower – Every year we get mails about the food being too good. Guys complain about some serious weight gain at the 3 Towers. Well the NG Kerk Aunties will be up to their usual tricks this year but the Chill – Zone will be stepping it up with some series snacks. Extra weight helps on the descents Baby!
