All set for the fourth RE:CM 100Miler
With just over a month to go there are still entries available for the Cape’s ultra mountain bike marathon the RE:CM 100Miler over 160km. Action takes place on Saturday 26 May in Malmesbury at the Swartland winery.
Big names like the RE:CM team riders Waylon Woolcock and Neil McDonald as well as Blend Properties' Charles Keey and Dave Morison have already entered for the event, while leading lady racer, Ischen Stopforth is a serious contender in the ladies competition. Winner of the first 100Miler Erik Kleinhans (Team Contego/28E) is also planning on racing, while
youngsters like Louis-Bresler Knipe and Adriaan Louw (both Contego/28 E) are also ready to participate.
One of the locals, who know the route pretty well, is Petrus Malherbe. According to Malherbe there is great respect amongst riders for the winner of the 100Miler. “You want to enter every year because you have a few war stories to share with other warriors after this grueling race that ends with a killer climb after more than 150km!”
This year will see the fourth edition of an event that grew from humbling beginnings in 2009 to what is now one of the must-do-events on the mountain biking calendar. Previous winners of the 100Miler are Erik Kleinhans, Jacques Rossouw and Christiaan Kriek.
Only pre-entries will accepted for both the 100Miler and 50Miler (this race over 80km starts at the halfway mark). Closing date for entries is Friday 18 May. Only the first 400 entries for the 100Miler and 200 for 50Miler will be allowed.
All finishers will receive a medal and a RE:CM long-sleeve T-shirt.
You can enter as a solo-rider in elite, sub-veterans, veterans or masters. The other option is to enter a team of four riders in open or mixed. The fourth rider over the finish line will determine the team result.
