PFITZENMAIER AND KING CLAIM FNB MAGALIES MONSTER MTB VICTORIES

 

The ATKV Buffelspoort (North West Province) was teaming with activity on Saturday, 24 May 2014 when a record field of just over 1600 mountain bike enthusiasts towed the line to take on the much revered 2014 FNB Magalies Monster Mountain Bike (MTB) Classic presented by ISUZU.  Both the men’s and women’s 80km races were won by first time contenders, Nico Pfitzenmaier (Team Dorma) and Janine King respectively.

According to Pfitzenmaier, the technical riding suited him.  “This is my first visit to Buffelspoort, the region is completely new to me.  The landscape and scenery is beautiful.  Coming into the event I knew that it was organised by Stillwater Sport & Entertainment and I’ve heard that it’s a really nice race.  So I wanted to try something new.  The route was a real challenge and included a combination of everything, a real mountain bike race.  I felt tremendously strong and really enjoyed the climbs.  On the start line I realised that there was quite a strong field.  So I decided that I was just going to have fun, finishing on top was a bonus.  I’ll definitely like to come back next year”.  Pfitzenmaier completed the 80km route in a lighting fast time of 03hours38minutes25seconds.  Shaun-Nick Bester came in second, while 2013 reigning champion Henry Uys finished third.

“I had a good idea of what to expect of the terrain,” says King.  “I looked at the course profile and was aware that it would be a tough race.  On the start line everybody was talking about the difficulty of the route.  The climbs were tricky, rocky and tough especially on tired legs.  It was fantastic.   I’d recommend this race as it is really good training and now I can say that I’ve done the Monster”.  King completed the 80km route in an impressive time of 04hours23minutes52seconds.  Maricel Bekker came in second, while Nicky Booyens finished third.
