The PwC Great Zuurberg Trek will be revealed to a wider audience when the boutique event is aired in a highlights package on SuperSport from tomorrow night.
The sixth edition of the Eastern Cape’s three-stage event took place from the Zuurberg Mountain Village in late May and will be shown in a half-hour premiere, followed by several repeats until Tuesday.
Race organiser Siska van der Bijl said the high-quality footage would showcase what the race was all about.
“It is one of the best productions of the race I have seen and it highlights not only the diversity of the trails, but also its true spirit and luxurious nature.
“It will give viewers a wonderful insight into what it offers – both on and off the bike.”
Entries for next year’s race – which takes place from May 29 to 31 – have opened, with the Platinum package already sold out. However, Van der Bijl said there were still some options available for interested riders.
Cyclists will have a further opportunity to “sample” the PwC Great Zuurberg Trek experience when the Hayterdale Classic, sponsored by Tavcor Commercial Vehicles, takes place on August 24 this year.
This one-day race, which incorporates three distance options, takes in all the best single-track sections of stage three. There will be distances of 60km, 30km and 12km.
The beauty of the Hayterdale Classic, said Van der Bijl, was that competitors could make a weekend of it.
Accommodation is available for the Friday and Saturday nights and there will be a spit braai and live music after the race. Riders can then enjoy the four different trails at Hayterdale at their leisure on the Sunday.
