Looking forward to Die Burger Mountain Bike Challenge it is important to ensure you bike is in a good working condition. Even though there are water points and Amarider-riders on the routes, please carry some extra inner tubes with you in case of punctures.
Also remember the following: If you are not planning on winning the race, start slower to avoid running out of energy or cramping later in the day. Be in control of your bike especially on descents where it could get slippery. Be patient with fellow cyclist even those who aren’t as fast as you on the single tracks.
