Knysna Bull

The Knysna Bull is the reincarnation of the popular Knysna 200, moved to a more favourable slot in the mountain biking event calendar – when the Garden Route weather is at its best and the mountain biking community is at its most vibrant. The event will feature three stages of roughly 65km, with stage starts outside Knysna and all finishes on Thesen Island. An urban prologue on the 21st along the streets and lanes of Thesen Island will kick off the racing in style. Although the racing is expected to be fierce throughout, the Knysna Bull is suitable for everyone. While the elite riders and top amateurs use it as a final tune up ahead of the gruelling Absa Cape Epic, riders of all levels will enjoy the Knysna Bull as they will be treated to superb forest riding, a relaxed lagoon side race village and a weekend away in #TrailTownSA, the capital of destination mountain biking.

A showcase of diverse routes. This Bull stage is a tale of two halves; the first is for the climbers as the ascent starts from the gun. From the days’ high point, you’ll leave the panoramic views of the Outeniqua Mountains behind and race for home through arguably the races most underrated single track, forgotten forestry roads and dairy farming traverses. Phantom Pass delivers you back to sea level and a rewarding finish around the lagoon edge.

 Too Good… Harkerville

The Harkerville forest routes are revered as some of the finest trails around. In 2018, we’ve moved this indigenous forest bliss to the second stage to cover every good inch of it. This stage inspired our 2018 tag #getlost. You too will no doubt lose yourself in the moment.
