Uys and Ralph were also the first riders in the men’s and women’s categories to cross the 32km mark, securing them the titles of King and Queen of the mountain at the 2012 ProNutro Magalies Monster Mountain Bike Classic.
According to Uys securing a victory on his fourth attempt at the ProNutro Magalies Monster was an awesome experience. “Today’s event was a killer, especially if you were racing it. Luckily I knew what to expect, I tried not to ride to the max at the start as I knew I’d pay for it in the end. The terrain is seriously unforgiving, every time you think you can take a rest you are forced to keep fighting. After doing the Magalies Monster any other race seems tame. I’m ecstatic with my performance today as this is definitely a great race to put on one’s CV,” says Uys. Maarten Van Der Horst came in 2nd, while Johan Renier finished 3rd.
Alta Kuys secured a 1st place in the women’s category of the 40km ProNutro Magalies Monster MTB Classic with finishing time of 02hours49minutes41seconds. Johandri Leicester came in 2nd, while Larise Venter finished 3rd.
Nicholas Popich finished 1st in the men’s category of the 40km ProNutro Magalies Monster MTB Classic with finishing time of 01hour55minutes43seconds. Louis Van Wyk came in 2nd, while Tyrone Marais finished 3rd.
