Garden Route Events has teamed up with the Garden Route Trail Park for the GR300 and GRlite being held in Feb 2016.
Riders in both the GR300 and GRlite shorter route will get to enjoy some of the best custom-built trails in SA as well as explore the magnificent SANParks Farleigh MTB trails which link up with the mountains behind the park. GRTP owner, Rob Dormehl assures GR300 and GRlite riders will be able to “Escape into the undiscovered and become part of the journey through the Outeniqua forests”.
The Garden Route Trail Park is nestled at the foot of the Outeniqua Mountains and the Karatara River Gorge, in the heart of the Garden Route and offers meticulously designed, world-class routes to provide riders of all levels with an oversupply of adrenalin, excitement, scenery and amazing views, flowing turns, berms, rollers and river crossings, massive rock pools, waterfalls and boulders.
“Over and above the usual excitement created by the event itself, the new start and finish location for Day 2 at the GRTP will undoubtedly add to the excitement of the event overall”, said race director Pax Mosterd. “Every year, we try to keep the event exciting by the addition of new trails, and it makes perfect sense to incorporate some of Farmer Robs efforts in the GR300 event next year.
The increase of international participants in the race in 2016 is definitely as a result of increased international marketing drive so we are super excited to present the Ultimate Garden Route Ride to riders nationally and internationally. Still placed firmly as the recommended Epic prep race, the GR300 crew look forward to showcasing this magnificent part of the world to locals and international participants alike.
Entries will be strictly limited to 500 riders across both the GR300 and GRlite events.
