Spectacular finish for 2019 schools MTB league

A record breaking 2019 Spur Schools Mountain Bike League (SSMTBL) finished in grand style this weekend at Wagpos High School in North West, with 87 schools competing.

After a day of fiercely contested racing the second and third positions in the mixed, girls and boys categories went to Drostdy High School with 566 points on the point board.

The purpose-built Olympic style cross country course at Wagpos High School is more undulating and technical than previous years.

Measuring 4,2 km with 85 m elevation per lap, the first half of the course is tight and technical with two challenging climbs, while the second half and finish area are flatter suiting the power rider.

Johan van Zyl of HTS Drostdy, came second in the junior men category, with a time of 46:24.

According to Khakhi Diala, Spur Group Sponsorship & Events Manager, the 2019 SSMTL final was a perfect culmination of a super exciting season.

“Spur honours family and togetherness and it was rewarding to see the camaraderie among the riders and families enjoying the bike village. As a founding sponsor of the League, Spur is invested in grassroots cycling in South Africa and it was good to see Soweto MTB Club, Tilelo High School, Go-Durban, KZN Development Trust and Tshwane Urban Riders team members at the finals as part of our development programme,” said Diala.

Governing body Schools Cycling South Africa (SCSA) acknowledged the top riders and officials at the event.

In addition, provincial awards were allocated, based on the following criteria: Provincial structures in place, training of team managers and coaches, social media activations, schools database, skills training, inter-schools activities and growth in terms of numbers.

The category winners were: Limpopo – Administrator of the Year; Gauteng South – Upcoming Province of the Year with Western Province clinching the award as Province of the Year.
