The Kingfisher MTB Marathon for 2013 was a huge success. We are certain that we will eventually catch the weather perfect and manage to have an even bigger turn-out in 2014.
In total we had 421 riders that took part with 97 cyclists that completed the 70km, 239 completed the 40km and 85 riders that did the 20km. In our eyes everyone that took part was a winner, but some were a bit faster than the rest and they were:
1st Man – Gert Heyns (02:30:02)
1st Lady – Andrea Huser (03:01:49)
1st Man – Frans Grotepass (01:32:29)
1st Lady – Mikayla Oliver (01:55:10)
1st Man – Dominic Miller (00:45:01)
1st Lady – Nadia van Niekerk (00:55:07)
