A decision was taken early in August by the owners of the event to move stage two and three to Cairnbrogie in 2022. The area is currently buzzing with trail building initiatives and this popular MTB event will celebrate these routes in 2022. Stage one’s race village returns to the beautiful Wittedrift High School again on Thursday 22nd September.

Host to stage two and three – Owner of the Cairnbrogie Mountain Bike and Pump Track –  Andrew Hill, said: “We are incredibly excited to unlock the real potential that Cairnbrogie has to offer mountain bikers. We love working with the Dr Evil Team and we are flattered to have been selected to host two stages for the first time in 2022.”

The routes are a work in progress and when we asked Dr Evil aka Leon Evans for his final commitment on the routes he replied: “The routes with new single tracks are currently still being created, so for now there are no GPX tracks available. We are also still awaiting various confirmations from forestry and SANParks to see where their harvesting operations will be taking place. We will only have final tracks when we do the route marking a few days prior to the event.”
