The 2019 Momentum Health Tankwa Trek, presented by Biogen, is set to take place from the 7th to the 10th of February next year.

The three day stage race has established a formidable reputation in the six editions since its launch in 2013. The technical nature of the singletracks, particularly in the Witzenberg Valley and the challenging Merino Monster climb make the route tough but rewarding. Stages one and two in particular provide mountain bikers with trials aplenty, while stage three – despite being the longest of the race – is all about fun on the Houdenbek trails.

Location: Kaleo Guest Farm, near Ceres, Koue Bokkeveld, Western Cape
Format: 3 day, clover leaf format, stage race
UCI Status: S1
Entry Fees: R8 490 Solo | R14 990 Teams (until 30 November 2018)
Entries Close: 14 January 2019
