Organizers announced registration is now open for the sixth annual Cape Argus Pick 'n Pay Mountain Bike Challenge scheduled for Sunday, March 2, 2008. The 2007 edition of the race broke attendance records, with a 50% jump, and similar demand for entries is expected for next year.
The event comes with both a 55km race and shorter tours through the scenic Boschendal Wine Estate and surrounding area. New for next year is a series of seeding events so that late entrants can still have the opportunity to land a better starting spot. Seeding events include the Argus Rotary Knysna MTB Challenge and the Stellenbosch MTB Challenge, as well as the Lourensford Classic, the latter is scheduled for October 6.
