Darling on the West Coast Way
“Only an hour from Cape Town… but a million miles away!”
Darling Brew Extreme 2015
Date: Saturday 30 May, 2015
Venue: Gabriel Pharo Sports grounds, Darling
GENERAL RACE INFORMATION
The Darling area has some of the most unique Mountain Bike trails in South Africa. Due to the fact that all our tracks run through working farmlands, the trails are never all together the same from year to year.
Crop rotations and moving camps of sheep and cattle play a big role in determining where they go. So much so that often single tracks are not man created but in fact cut by the cattle and sheep them selves through the fynbos and plantations.
If you rode the Darling Brew Extreme last year, don’t expect to ride the same course this year, many of our four legged designers have made their changes and stamped their personal mark on this year’s route.
Ready yourself for challenging and technical terrain that we hope will make the Darling Brew Extreme a race to be remembered.
