Bridgestone Route 66 MTB Experience

February 15 @ 06:00 - February 17 @ 17:00

The 2019 Bridgestone Route 66 MTB Experience

Back for the 9th time by popular demand, it’s The Bridgestone Route 66 MTB Experience and is, without a doubt, the most popular stage race in Gauteng.

This race is a must if you are planning to do Epic, Joburg2C, Sani or The Leverage Corporation’s special 3-day stage race called The Great Kei Trek taking place in the Eastern Cape at the beginning of May 2019.

The Bridgestone Route 66 MTB Experience is a tough and challenging three-day MTB event taking place from Friday the 15th to Sunday 17th of February 2019.

You have a choice of doing one of the following races:
1) 3 days: The Bridgestone Route 66 MTB Experience, (Friday to Sunday)
2) 2 days: The Bridgestone Route 66 MTB Weekend Experience, (Saturday and Sunday) or
3) 1 day: The Bridgestone Route 66 MTB Mini Experience (Sunday) – Now open to all riders

We have made some new and exciting changes for 2019.

Entries closes : 1 Feb 2019.

Announcement 1: No Team Entries – Only Solo Rider Categories

We have listened to you and after much deliberation, we have decided that all riders will ride in the solo category. Many of you have had your partner bail on you for whatever reason and the result is that you have had a non-classified finish. So in 2019, we will only have solo categories.
The good news is that Prize monies per category have doubled since 2018.
Plus we will have an additional R700 per day for the first male and female rider to cross the line.

Announcement 2: Introducing The Bridgestone Route 66 Lite
This is really exciting – we are now introducing The Bridgestone Route 66 Lite. If the challenges of a gruelling and tough 85km stage seem a bit daunting and you love riding stage races, we have now introduced Route 66 Lite – a 3-day stage race taking place at the same time. But remember, it’s still not a walk in the park.
Day 1 and 2 will be shorter, but Day 3 will still be the “Fast and Furious” 60km route.
