Bike Market Gauteng Enduro #3 Hakahana

The third and final round of the 2017 Bike Market Gauteng Enduro MTB Series took place at Hakahana Trails in Hartbeespoort. The 5 Stage enduro featured two of Haka’s most grueling runs, including the infamous Stage 2 Peppercorns, which is basically one long rock garden, and the newly introduced Stage 11 Karacross XC stage, that last stage of the day with a lot of pedaling. The more fun and flowy stages of 10, 3 and 4/9/4 where in the mix.

Starting at 8:30am, riders made their way out into the mountains with the option of staring on either stage 2 or 10 before moving onto the final three stages. Clean runs and fitness were key as always and saw Junior rider, Keira Duncan, again come out on top with the fastest times on each stage, and the fastest time of the day with a 12:33.

Wade Prinsloo took the Elite Mens win and was the 2nd fastest in the day with a time of 12:52. Frank Meyer took the 3rd quickest time of the day with 13:18. It was great to see KZN Downhill rider, Sam Bull make his way to Hakahana for the first time and with a time of 13:34 was the 4th fastest. Hilton Frost rounded off the top 5 with his time of 13:36. Impressively, just 1 minute separating the top 5.
