Darling Hills MTB Stage Race
March 1 @ 8:00 am - March 3 @ 5:00 pm
The Darling Hills, 3 Day Mountain Bike Stage Race, will be the first ever stage race to take place in the Darling Hills, and the premier race in the Swartland/ West Coast Area. By providing an exceptional race experience, our mission is to expose participants to some of the best mountain biking in the country, offer sponsors a targeted marketing and engagement opportunity, build tourism in the area and benefit local communities through select outreach programmes. Contributing to charity and assisting local communities is an essential component of nurturing sustainability in South Africa. The main beneficiary of the race will be Swartland/ West Coast SPCA.
The routes for each day have been designed so that they offer riders great trails, spectacular scenery and beautiful flowers.
As with any good mountain bike trail, there will be a mix of everything… tough climbs, fast downhill’s, a few technical sections, sand and loads of free-flowing sections for pure riding bliss!
