Downhill Mountain Biking Champs


World Downhill Mountain Biking Champs are coming to Pietermaritzburg…. 

Check it out this weekend, the 11th April 2009 will see Pietermaritzburg becoming the focus of the mountain biking world. Pietermaritzburg is set to host the opening round for the 2009 season.  There will be over 700 cyclists, from over 40 countries, including our very own home grown world champ Greg Minaar.

Greg has won the downhill title three times and will be looking for a great start to the season, as he goes in search of his fourth title. Greg has checked out the course for this weekend and has given his thumps up. He reckons it’s a solid course and will offer many challenges to the riders.

The course will be challenging to all the riders, as it has some really spectacular drops and jumps that will thrill the spectators.  So make sure if you are in the Natal area, to get down to the championships and give your full support to Greg and the rest of the riders. It will be a thrilling event, which is not to be missed.
