The 2021 KAP sani2c was one of the best editions of the event yet, with perfect weather and trails in top condition, along with nail-biting racing at the front end of the Race. Three intrepid riders, now known as the Black Mamba Legends, have done every single sani2c (riders who finish the KAP sani2c ten times earn the title of Black Mamba). Flavio Scarpa from Scottburgh, George de Beer from Durban and Grant Macpherson from Hillcrest, were bitten by the sani2c bug in 2005, and have now each completed the event 17 times.
