Diesel Electric powers 17th edition
Diesel Electric powers 17th edition of the Bloem 24 Hour MTB events!
Bloemfontein – The 17th edition of the ever popular Bloem 24 Hour Mountain Bike event will once again take place in 2019. The Bloem 24 Hour MTB event will in 2019 be powered by Diesel Electric together with KYB Shock absorbers & NGK sparkplugs.
The event will once again take place at VCSV Retief Camp grounds just outside Bloemfontein, next to Maselspoort. As one of the most popular mountain bike events on the calendar, riders can look forward to a fun filled year end challenge.
The Race village will be taking on a brand new look with support zone and braai area moving to a new spot. With the Start/Finish “stoep” still the main feature on the race village area. With a brand new side by side bridge system planned to get riders in and out of the 7km lap, it’s going to provide an even more spectator friendly environment.
The 2019 event will see Solo and Team categories compete for the title of the top dog after 24 Hours of riding. With a lap of 7km and an average accent of 80m per lap it could turn into an interesting race.
In 2018 we saw a new solo male and female record set at the event. Daniel Stroebel claiming the Solo win with a total of 392 km (56 Laps) and Bianca Cooper finishing a fantastic 5th overall on 315km (45laps).
With Diesel Electric, KYB Shock absorbers & NGK sparkplugs coming on board as the main sponsors to the event, we can all expect some fantastic changes and improvements to the event.
The teams will be competing in any of the following categories, Open Team / Mixed team (2 Female, 3 Male) / Schools Team (allowed 1 extra rider).
24 Hour Coffee, Food and all kinds of snacks will be available at the race village, and lucky draw prizes will be going out every hour of the event to those who are on course.
