Wild Flower Weekend – 13 October 2012

The weekend of the 13th of October 2012 was the inaugural Wild Flower Weekend event that consisted out of 3 MTB distances (20km, 40km and 80km) and a Trail run (16km).

The event coincided with the Nieuwoudtville Agriculture show and featured a variety of animals on display as well. The turn out for the first time event was fantastic and well supported by the local community. This despite the fact that this specific date is overcrowded on the cycling calendar. We like to thank all the different product sponsors (Squirt, Spur, Built It, Namaqua wines and Wimpy).

The support that we received from the Nieuwoudtville town people and the farmers are greatly appreciated and we hope that we managed to surpass the expectations that you had in regards to the event.

In short the results:
