Euro Steel Drak Descent and GWK Run the Rivers Final Newsletter

16 January 2019

The Spoors Team has completed the preparation for what is surely one of SA’s most spectacular MTB and Trail Run races. The single tracks are sure to challenge and thrill the most widely travelled cyclist and runner. Whilst the distances of the days are not huge, the single track will traverse terrain that is spectacular and challenging! You are guaranteed to feel a sense of accomplishment when you reach the finish!

The Euro Steel Drak Descent has reached the 450-rider cap and entries are now closed.

The shorter MTB Challenge and two Trail Runs still have entries available and can be entered online until Wednesday, or at registration on Friday or on the day.


Our principal sponsors, Euro Steel have been absolutely amazing in their support of this event and thus mountain biking in general in our area. We as the Sani Spoors team and the Euro Steel organising committee would really like again to thank Colin and David Wilson and their team for assisting us in making this event a possibility.
