KING PRICE TRAILSEEKER #1

ARC ROODEPLAAT, GP | 22 MAY 2021
ENTER NOWDIRECTIONS

Event Detail

A mere 15 km north of Pretoria, close to the Roodeplaat dam, lies a bushveld haven for mountain bikers. Farm roads, cattle paths, dual tracks and strategically designed single track for mountain bikers make this the perfect venue for the third event in the King Price Trailseeker MTB Series. The terrain is typically rough and rocky amongst the undulating grasslands, but quickly turns more forgiving as the trails wind alongside the lush Pienaars river and open onto fast and flowy canal paths. The route is known to be flat and fast but does require some technical skills to take on the rocky single track. Wildlife can often be spotted along the routes; just one more reason to love these trails! The Bundu Bash attracts over 3000 mountain bikers who all enjoy winter cycling and bushveld adventures.

NEW EVENT FORMAT & COVID REGULATIONS

Advendurance will cover all bases to ensure the safety of the riders and runners by hosting this event in a completely new format:

In accordance with announced Government Regulations, the Nissan Trailseeker will be sub-divided into separate events over the weekend and limited to 500 riders per event distance. Each distance will have a separate start time and will be limited to only 500 participants to ensure that there will never be more than 500 people on the venue at any given time.

*No late entries, substitutions or unpaid entries will be accepted on the day.

REGISTRATION

We are changing up the cycling scene by eliminating the registration process and getting our clients to experience the trails without standing in long queues.  There will not be a Pre-Registration or number collection prior to the event, BUT, at the event every participant must be screened for Covid-19, this is the process:

  • I have a SAS Timing board: you’ll go through Covid Screening and your number will be double-checked
  • I bought a SAS Timing Board during the entry process: you’ll go through Covid Screening and receive your new number board
  • I don’t have a SAS Board: You can purchase a SAS Timing board at any of these Specialized shops:
