29 February – 1 March 2020
The Stanford MTB Classic event
On the weekend of the 29th February & 1st of March 2020 mountain bikers are invited to gather for two days of MTB fun at the Stanford MTB Classic. An event where entrants set their own personal goals, and to us everyone is a winner! For the racing snakes who need a challenge and reward, STRAVA sections will be incorporated on the routes, and prizes will go to the overall winner of the Ladies and Men’s categories. This way everybody gets to have a good time on their Mountain bikes. The event boasts an amazing relaxed country village atmosphere, spectacularly scenic riding through fynbos and farmlands, and is hosted by the well-known and sought after Stanford Valley Guest farm. Be sure to join in the festivities at Stanford Valley.
It is an event for avid mountain bikers looking to reconnect with the by-gone spirit of the sport. For those who know how to have fun on and off their bikes. Mountain biking families can gather at Stanford Valley and the fitter members can ride the longer routes while the less serious can cruise through the short courses. Our aim is to create a relaxed vibe and experience on the bike, but do not underestimate the challenge of the route. Riders need to have a reasonable level of fitness and skill to participate.
Post-stage you can enjoy a delicious lunch with like-minded people before drifting off to your guesthouse or alternative accommodation.
