The second round of the USN MTB Cup took place on Saturday, 25 February 2017, at the Modderfontein Reserve in Gauteng. This hotly contested cup is made up of four events at different venues and caters for the more technically skilled riders of all ages.

Alec Brough, from Rustenburg Cycling Club, won his age category again in the Jacaranda pre-Argus road race held in Pretoria over a distance of 90 km in a time of 2:36. 

One of Rustenburg’s most talented juniors, Sheldon Kukard from Rustenburg Cycling Club, had another outstanding performance when he came overall 6th in the 30 km race and overall 5th in his age category. Torrential rains the previous week transformed the track into a muddy mess in this famous marshland on the outskirts of Johannesburg. To make Sheldon’s achievement even more remarkable is that it took him only 1:13 to complete the course!

Next on the calendar; the Kgaswane Mountain Bike Race presented by Land Rover at the Protea Hotel Hunters Rest on Saturday, 25 March 2017, promises great fun! For more information contact Nico Steenekamp on 083-264 3071 or email him at
