De Groot Crowned Fedhealth MTB Challenge Champion

Durbanville (Cape Town) – Robyn De Groot claimed gold at the inaugural 60km Fedhealth MTB Challenge at the picturesque Meerendal Wine Estate on Sunday, 06 September 2015 in an impressive time of 03 hours 35 seconds.

According to De Groot, Stillwater Sports knows how to host great events. “The Fedhealth MTB Challenge featured open trails and beautiful views. It’s a proper mountain bike race, so you do need to be fit to really enjoy it. I would definitely recommend this race. It is soul candy for a mountain biker. It’s everything that a mountain biker can want and it includes activities for the entire family.” Louise Ferreira came in second, while Diana Carolin finished third.

Closing off a weekend of exceptional mountain biking as part of the ISUZU MTB Festival Cape Town, mountain bikers that were not yet comfortable with a 60km route could enter the less daunting 35km Fedhealth MTB Challenge or the fun 15km Fedhealth MTB Challenge.

Allison Morton was the rider home in the women’s 35km Fedhealth MTB Challenge with a finishing time of 02 hours 06 minutes 28 seconds. Beaulah Buitendag came in second, while Charmaine Adams finished third.

Hannelle Smith claimed the top spot on the podium in the women’s 15km Fedhealth MTB Challenge in a time of 45 minutes 11 seconds. Kate Rolfe came in second, while Emmerentia Nel finished third.
