Cape Town, South Africa – Current National Marathon Champion, Robyn De Groot will toe the line at the inaugural 60km Fedhealth MTB Challenge at the picturesque Meerendal Wine Estate (Durbanville) on Sunday, 06 September 2015.

“I have yet to be disappointed by a Stillwater Sports event,” says De Groot who is currently the National Marathon Champion. “I’m coming down to race so I will definitely push myself, but I am also looking forward to a good weekend with likeminded people. I have ridden at Meerendal twice this year. It has incredible MTB trails and an awesome venue in terms of hospitality and family enjoyment. It’s fantastic to see that the festival caters for children too. I wish we had these events when I was a child.”

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