The Pick 'n Pay Amashovashova road race will celebrate its 21st anniversary in October by introducing a new mountain bike event held in conjunction with the famous 106km road race that runs from Pietermaritzburg to Durban.
On Saturday, October 20, the Asishove 45km mountain bike race will also serve as the Fritz Pienaar Cycles National Half Marathon Series finale while a 20km version will be an option for novices. Races will be held within the Giba Gorge Mountain Bike Park outside Pinetown.
As the most popular series in the country, the National Half Marathon Series attracts nearly 10,000 participants each year according to Supercycle. 10 events comprise the series. The Asishove event replaces the Alpine Heath as the final series' race.
