SA Champs is the most important race of the year for Downhill riders.
*Downhill Mountain Biking (DH) is an ever-growing sport which has seen tremendous progress over the last couple of years in South Africa. DH is for the advanced and extreme rider whose love for speed brings them blazing down the roughest single-track descents through rock gardens, massive drops and gnarly root sections. Downhill riders will need a good sense of balance to navigate through the toughest terrains under high speeds.
Downhill races are very intense and exciting to watch, with one rider racing down a defined downhill section, in the fastest time possible. (wpdownhill.co.za)
