Kruger ready for MTB Challenge

HB Kruger will hope for a successful title defence on Sunday 16 September, when he takes on the 60 km Fedhealth MTB Challenge at Boschendal Farm Estate.

He claimed victory in 2017 in an impressive time of 02:51.

“The MTB Challenge is one of my favourite one day events,” said Kruger. “Claiming gold in 2017 was an amazing feeling. It was one of my first races back after my shoulder injury. The route featured some great single track in the picturesque Winelands. The win was a big morale booster.

“I’d definitely recommend the challenge to other mountain bikers. The routes are beautiful, well marked, and there are various distances that cater for all types of mountain bikers. I am really looking forward to racing on the Boschendal trails. My goal is to get to the top step of the podium.”

Riding for the same team, Nicol Carstens and Jurgens Uys are sure to be tough competition in the 60 km event.

“I never say no to a challenge,” says Carstens. “The trails in and around Boschendal are sure to be challenging and rewarding. I finished third at the 2015 event. I’d love to better my result.

“I am looking forward to shredding the awesome Boschendal trails and spending time with family and friends afterwards.”
