Kleinhans Ready for MTB Party of the Year

by | Sep 22, 2015

Stellenbosch – Affectionately known as the mountain bike party of the year, the 3rd annual Pennypinchers Origin Of Trails is guaranteed to live up to its reputation. Taking place in Stellenbosch on Friday, 27 and Saturday, 28 November 2015, entrants are encouraged to focus more on the trails and less on racing.

“As a professional mountain biker I need to be on peak performance for as long as possible during the season,” says Ariane Kleinhans. “I therefore really welcome the invitation to enjoy an event. At other races there is never time to talk to other riders.

“After having spent two months in Europe, I am really looking forward to seeing everyone again while doing what we love most, riding our bikes. For me, the Pennypinchers Origin Of Trails is like a year-end function that celebrates our sport.”

This much anticipated event gives riders the “once a year” opportunity to experience a spectacular combination of single-track that have been previously unknown and through the year inaccessible to the mountain biking community of Stellenbosch.

The organizers of the Pennypinchers Origin Of Trails aim to offer participants an unbelievable cycling experience, while raising funds to further trail building in Stellenbosch.

Each morning riders will be able to stock up on much needed energy at the Bokomo Breakfast Zone, while a mouth-watering lunch table will beckon riders once they’ve crossed the finish line.

In addition to a mountain bike experience like no other, riders will also receive a fantastic goody-bag, while stunning lucky draw prizes will be up for grabs.

Live entertainment will set the mood at the finishing venue. Family and friends are invited to enjoy the special vibe!
