Pedal-power at Jeffreys Bay Wind Farm

The fifth edition of the JBay Wind Farm MTB Classic cycling race took off on Saturday 22 July in perfect conditions. Some 500 riders, of all ages and skill levels, took to the trails around the Eastern Cape holiday town of Jeffreys Bay over three distances; 25km, 50km and the gruelling 85km ultra marathon.

The male and female 85km ultra marathon winners each won US$757!

This is the third year that Globeleq South Africa has sponsored this event. It’s seen many remarkable improvements year on year; more riders, more support and much innovation, particularly in the 85km route, where a lot of new track has been built.
