RVO Kakuzi Hills 25/26 Jun 2016
RVO Kakuzi Hills is a 2-day mountain bike race within the expansive Kakuzi Farm. Their superb campsite will be open from Friday to Sunday. SINGLE DAY registration is welcome. A moderate level of physical fitness and beginner technical skills are required to ensure one’s enjoyment.
TRAIL TERRAIN is smooth without technical sections. Thorns abound so tubeless tires filled with an extra dose of sealant is essential (Stan’s is best). There will be a single water point per stage. In line with true adventures, participants should be self-suffient for on stage nutrition, mechanical support and extraction. RVO Kakuzi Hills is best suited to families and the inexperienced mountain biker that yearns for adventure.
