YOUR FAVOURITE STAGE RACES

 

There’s still nothing like a word-of-mouth recommendation to give some real-world credibility to an event. We did a survey to our @TreadMTBmag twitter followers to find out which South African stage race is their favourite, and why. Two races that were prominent were the FNB Wines2Whales and the FedGroup Berg & Bush, while the Nedbank Sani2c also featured regularly as did the Old Mutual joBerg2c.

Note: Much to our editor’s disdain, we have left the tweets unedited…
