Stage 3: Greyton - Greyton

Wednesday, 22 March 2017

Overview

78km, 1650m climbing

After two rugged days riders will get to enjoy a shorter stage and the mountain biking delights of Greyton. After a country meander that takes riders through nearby Bereaville and Genadendal, it is straight into a series of climbs including Mad Dog Bite, Zig Zag and the UFO – the latter so named because of the strange UFO-like building perched on the hilltop. But what goes up must go down, which means some thrilling descents and great, rugged singletrack. Be warned though: the trails are rugged and many a sharp rock lies in wait.
