Post-Lockdown Goal #68: Find The G-Spot
The G-Spot is one of Stellenbosch mountain biking’s legendary trails, situated riding distance from the centre of town and offering a technical test for experienced riders and novices alike. The whos-who of mountain biking hone their skills here before the Absa Cape Epic; who can forget Lars Forster’s epic (sorry) off in the days just after the 2020 event was cancelled.
It is also a hallowed place, this G-Spot, a difficult thing to find in the noise of modern life. Rider Max Sullivan and cinematographer André Hugo – André brought us the exquisite look at the mountain biking possibilities on that most remote of islands, St Helena, a few months back – headed out there just before lockdown and resisted the temptation to add a noisy soundtrack – just the raw sounds of tyres crunching gravel, the wind in the wheels and a chorus of crickets for accompaniment.
There you have it. A minute of raw magic; something to look forward to once lockdown is behind us.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE
