Jason Meaton wins his 4th MySpar MTB Classic

The 5th MySpar MTB Classic was held this past Sunday (6 May 2018) at the superb venue of Zuurbron Farm & Bike Park.

Over 730 participants enjoyed a glorious day of 4 different manicured mountain bike routes and a trail run.

The 60km challenge started in perfect weather conditions. Not an easy race in any terms with few riders covering it in less than 3 hours.

In a closely contested challenge it was 3x winner Jason Meaton who claimed his fourth title in a time of 2:24:30.

East London’s Jason Peach was 2nd (2:25:51) and 3rd Grant Daly (2:28:27).

In the ladies race Yolande de Villiers dominated in an incredible time of 2:30:53.

Defending champion Anriette Schoeman took 2nd place (2:43:36) with Siska van der Bijl finishing 3rd (2:45:23).

The King and Queen of the mountain were race winners Jason Meaton and Yolande de Villiers.

Spectators were treated to a variety of food stalls, beer tents, jumping castles, and some great MTB racing.

Race founder & director, Jacques Steenkamp worked hard at ensuring the entire family could spend a fun-filled morning on his farm and judging from the comments received everyone did just that.
