Riders’s clinic aims to prepare cyclists for race

Rynhardt Engelbrecht did the 17-kilometre route.

LYDENBURG – It is just a couple of months before the second Lydenburg Heritage Mountain Bike Race and the organisers will host a clinic day for cyclist on October 22 at Gustav Klingbiel Nature Reserve.

According to organiser, Charlene Coetzee, the clinic day is part of the preparations for the race ton March 25 next year. “We have prepared a team of trainers that will help the riders be fully ready for any race they would like to participate in.”

This event is open to anyone who is interested and would like to learn more about cycling.

The following specialists will be assisting at the MTB clinic day: Ernest Coetzee (skills training and cornering), Trent Sinclair (skills training, slow technical, downhill), Arie Roos (skills training, attack position, theoretical repairs), Paul Jansen van Vuuren (skills training and rock gardens), Stephanie Roos (pilates instructor and cross training) and Sheena Clark (rules and regulations).

The event will start at 07:30 and end at 14:00. “There’s limited space seeing as we only have 80 spaces available. It is R150 per person – this includes a hat, lunch pack and an information book.”

Lydenburg Heritage Mountain Bike comprises a 17-kilometre and 30-kilometre race, as well as a two-kilometre kiddies route. While the riders navigate the tough terrain, spectators can browse through the various stalls in the market area.
