The tenth edition of the annual seven-day mountain bike stage race, The Cape Pioneer Trek, which is dubbed #racewithsoul.
The event continues to attract an increasing number of international participants as well as a growing number of discerning South African mountain bikers looking for a rewarding week-long mountain bike experience.
“This race is now very established and we are now working on refining everything so that the participants feel completely satisfied with every aspect of the event,” said Henco Rademeyer of Dryland Event Management, the company that owns and organises the Momentum Health Cape Pioneer Trek, presented by Biogen.
“We’re making sure that the route is as stimulating as possible, whether it’s the actual trail itself or the scenery. We have journey stages from one town to another, and then exploration stages, where stages start and finish at the same venue. Make no mistake, the route will still be challenging, but we want the participants to feel like they’ve done a proper mountain bike race when they’re finished,” said Rademeyer.
“The partnership between Momentum Health and the Cape Pioneer Trek is a logical fit for us, seeing that research clearly shows that your physical and financial health are closely related. For this exact reason we’ve carefully designed our Health product to reward active individuals, like the ones riding the Cape Pioneer Trek,” said Carel Bosman, Head of Sponsorships, Momentum.
“Biogen is extremely excited to be working alongside Dryland Events on yet another premier mountain bike stage race on the South African calendar. The recent awarding of UCI status to the Cape Pioneer Trek speaks volumes of the calibre of event that riders can expect and we relish the opportunity to get stuck in and add value,” said Brandon Fairweather, Biogen Marketing Manager.
