It is time again to bedazzle all Mountain Bikers with the under-marketed and understated Induna Adventures Cross Country course in Hazyview. It is again time that you rekindle the desire to improve all of your mountain biking skills in a controlled manner. Come and test your skills by riding our all-rideable, yet challenging Lap racing course. Riding on the Induna Cross country course is like a play park full of super tube rides, it will definitely score a 10 on anyone’s “fun-meter”

The course does not follow any of the Annual Big Induna mountain bike marathon (tracks?), and thus dishes up a whole new experience for all old-comers.

The course holds nothing back!!

Join with us in the establishing of Cross Country Lap Racing in South Africa, as the only mountain bike Olympic discipline, and with this honoring the achievements and acoldes of Burry Stander. Maybe the next Burry Stander is you?

Why Cross Country Lap Racing:

– It is an excellent  spectator sport

– You improve your skills by riding a challenging course more than ones. This means you can anticipate how to ride the next lap.

– You can compete not just against other riders, but against your own lap times.

– The best of all mountain bike riding terrain, crambed in one course.

– It was the way Burry did it!

Come and munch up the course which will satisfy any adventure-hungry rider!!
