The historic town of Paarl will again come to a veritable standstill on 18 and 19 November 2017 as residents and riders turn out for the fourth annual Sanlam MTB Invitational. The incredible Sanlam Invitational experience is available to 300 public teams on a first come first served basis.
Presented by the City of Drakenstein and ASG, the event has become a sought after property over the past four years. It’s one of the most iconic events on the national racing calendar.
It is really something special and a unique opportunity to traverse the beautiful Paarl Mountain on a saddle.
The first stage consists of a tough 60km journey circumventing the entire Paarl Mountain while the second stage is a more manageable 40km – covering a shorter loop on the mountain.
The Sanlam MTB Invitational is staged in one of the most beautiful and unique areas in South Africa, covering the best possible MTB terrain, coupled with warm hospitality and excellent food.
Paarl is located 50km from the Cape Town CBD, which places it within a comfortable travelling distance with easy airport links. The travel and accommodation hassle factors are therefore minimised.
The two-day multi stage Sanlam MTB Invitational affords amateur and professional mountain bikers with a passion for the sport the experience of a lifetime.
During the Sanlam Invitational riders are treated as VIP's and they have access to world-class hospitality at waterpoints and at the Rhebokskloof race village.
