Hi John

Just wanted to thank you and all those involved in organising and hosting a fantastic ride yesterday. Paul and I rode the 37km and really enjoyed it. The river crossing was fabulous, nice to cool the tired and hot body down!!!  The water points were great and everyone so friendly and helpful I suffered a puncture and one of the marshals was very quick to lend me a helpful hand. We are really looking forward to the event next year – count us in and hopefully we can encourage some others to join us!!!



Hi John

Congratulations on an amazing first edition of the Henderson Valley MTB! I also think all those that brought their kids really enjoyed the whole “Race Village” being so kiddies friendly. Some of my friends were found lying on their backs enjoying some recovery time while their little ones were safely locked up with the little sheep JYou guys are definitely the masters of creating a nice race village that caters for the family!

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, 

but rather to skid in broadside, loudly proclaiming WOW, What a RIDE!

Hi Rob and John,

Today’s race (55km) was one of the best I have ever participated in. Every metre of the course reminded me of the reason why I participate in the sport of Mountain Biking. It had everything in it, rocks, sand, water, tough hills and rapid descents. It also had spectacular scenery. I could not help notice the views, the White Stinkwoods, wild Olives and many other trees and birds. Don’t ever lose the river crossing that was just wonderful. No doubt there will be problems if the river is flowing stronger. For me the scenery was just the very best. After today I have to remind you, that you should never forget that even with all the hardship and sacrifices you farmers face, you are truly blessed to live in that part of our country.

I am convinced that this race can easily match any MTB race organized in the Eastern Cape within a very short time.

Kind regards

Lawrence Blane
