Well, well, it looks like Pietermaritzburg is going to become famous on the 9th of April. And no, it’s not because of it being the one compulsory stop on the way to Durbs or of it being the capital city of KZN.
Instead, it’s going to be famous because of it’s immortalisation on the silver screen with the release of a new documentary, The Tipping Point, by US filmmaker, Clay Porter.
The film is going to be summary of the 2008 downhill mountain bike World Cup Series and an opportunity to glance into the world of local cycling great, Greg Minnaar – who also happens to be a Maritz boy.
Man, this is fantastic news not just for Martizburg, but the whole of SA! Wow, we should receive more news like this every day, instead of listening to stupid clowns on eNews *cough* Malema *cough*
The film will be shown at the Cascades Nu Metro Cinema, in Pietermaritzburg, on Thursday, April 9, and a ticket will cost you 50 bucks at the door. Be there! It’s release also coincides with the opening round of the 2009 Nissan UCI Mountain Bike World Cup!
