    The first race to kick off the 2013 MiWay Big5 MTB Series got under way in windy and cold conditions on a crisp Sunday morning on the KZN north coast. Beautiful Mtunzini Country Club was the host for the race venue yet again, with the superb course of sugarcane singletrack, dense indigenous forest and boardwalks of mangrove swamp treating all riders who took part! With the worst weather in the 16 years of the race’s existence, luckily, the turn-out of over 800 participants was superb.

      1. Please note that Summer Rutherford who placed 80th in the 10km race is 11 years old. She is in the U16 category in the results which is incorrect. She therefore came 2nd in the U13 girls.
