Organisers of the Darling Hills MTB have opened the race to E-bike riders with the introduction of a new category for the 3-day mountain bike event, which takes place on 30 August-01 September 2019.

E-Bike racers will start in their own batch before the other categories depart. The E-Bike category is open to anybody. E-bikes, which will be clearly marked on results sheets, will be timed and included in results but won’t be eligible for category prizes. The inclusion of the category comes with a few rules. E-bike riders will not be part of the racing section of the event and may not influence the outcome of any category in the normal mountain bike section. E-bike riders should be considerate and give way to normal mountain bikers.

They will not be allowed to disrupt the flow of normal racing on single track sections (whether uphill or downhill) and those racing in the normal category will not be allowed to draft behind an e-bike on flat roads.  Using the same rad, scenic trails as the conventional race, yet starting earlier in the day, the E-Bike race will be an action-packed affair. The separate start time is crucial and will ensure very little or no influence on the other categories at the event.

Darling Hills MTB’s mission is to motivate as many people as possible to ride a bike and this also falls in with our philosophy to spread the message of wellness, joy, fun, social time and family time through the privilege of riding.

A mountain bike ride that benefits the SPCA’s efforts…

More than a relaxed weekend out, the ride is a necessary weekend out, with funds from the entry fee going into the SPCA’s efforts.

By entering Darling Hills MTB Stage Race 1-3 March 2019, you ensure that the work of the Swartland & West Coast SPCA continues – preventing cruelty to all animals, rescuing animals from crisis and distress, giving shelter to sick, injured, abandoned and unwanted animals, and providing subsidised veterinary care to animals from less fortunate communities and educating young children about the humane treatment of animals.
