The Cradle Mountain Trophy 2017 is taking place at Maropeng in the heart of the Cradle of Humankind on the weekend of Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th April.  This two-day mountain biking event promises to be an exhilarating experience.

Riders will have the option of competing in four different events, namely:
1 – The Cradle Mountain Trophy – 75km on Saturday the 8th at 7am and 45km on Sunday the 9th of April at 8am
2 – The Cradle Mountain Challenge – 75km on Saturday the 8th at 7am
3 – The Cradle Mountain Adventure – 40km on Sunday the 9th of April at 8.30am
4 – NEW!! The Cradle Mountain Mini Adventure – 25km on Sunday the 9th of April at 7.30am

The Cradle Mountain Trophy promises a fantastic offering of single track, plus some challenging off-road, and of course some good technical aspects. But do remember that we are calling this the “Mountain Trophy” for good reason. It is not all flat. We will be making good use of tracks and trails which have previously been used for private events.

Entries will close on the 26th of March. No late entries will be accepted.

As usual, Cycle Events will be managing the registration process, so you can register here today.

The event will be an SA Seeding event, and riders will be seeded according to their SA Seeding Index.
