A while ago we posted a blog on the Toyota MTN Bike Park Event, and this past weekend, the grand spectacle finally took place. Doubling up as the 5th round of the 2009 Central Gauteng Provincial Series, the Toyota Supercycling event proved to be an unbelievable inaugural showpiece for the new purpose-built facility.
DCM Chrome’s Bryce Munro dominated on Sunday when he cruised to a significant overall victory in the Elite and Under-23 Men’s category. A worthy mention must go to current African Elite Men’s cross-country champ, Specialized’s Ben Melt Swanepoel, who finished second and Jan Withaar in third.
In the women’s category, IMC Momentum’s Yolande Speedy proved to be in her own league as she wiped the floor with all competitors. Second place went to Claudia von Tutschek and the final podium place was claimed by Carien van Jaarsveld.
Overall, it was an awesome event which should bring some new excitement to the concrete jungle, known as Sandton. And seriously, who would’ve thought that Bryanston could actually have a MTB track?!
Stunning babe *grin*
