Himeville – Following his Absa African Men Jersey triumph at the recently concluded Absa Cape Epic, Team NAD Pro MTB’s Matt Beers will be back at the 2019 KAP sani2c for a shot at defending the title that he won with Nico Bell in 2018.
The KAP sani2c will be 15 years old in 2019, and while it is one of the oldest mountain bike stage races in South Africa, it has also become the largest, with around 4200 riders enjoying three days of flowing trails from Himeville in the southern Drakensberg down to Scottburgh on the KZN south coast. Over 5 days, three separate versions of the event take place: the Trail starts on a Tuesday, the Adventure starts on the Wednesday, and the Race starts on the Thursday.
On Friday 11 May, Arthur Duncan, aged 83, from Howick, completed the 260 km Adventure in the three day KAP sani2c mountain bike stage race. Arthur took up cycling seriously at the age of 65, and has completed KAP sani2c race five times previously, but not since 2010.
