Rider's Brief | #3 Buffelsdrift, 21 May 2022
Welcome to the King Price Trailseeker Series – the king of all things trail.
Where MTB riding is an addiction and seeking new trails is a passion. Here you will find all you need to know about your upcoming race at Buffeldsdrift:
PARKING OPEN FROM:
There will be a central registration point for all riders. The kids participating in the Schools Introductory XCM Series, riders participating in the Gauteng XCM Series, as well as the Trailseeker participants all register at one central point.
Team Managers may collect race numbers on behalf of their riders. Please ensure that a child competing in the Schools Series is registered on the system as such and that they have entered for the correct distance.
For any School Cycling related queries on the day, please visit the SCSA gazebo at the race venue.
View your or any other rider’s Batch, Start time and School:
Please be aware of the stop and go roadworks section on the Moloto Road on your way to the race village at ARC. Allow for extra travelling time before the start of your race.
• SASeeding data will be used to batch riders.
• To be an Overall Podium Contender you have to start in the A batch of your respective distance.
• If you compete as an age category rider you can start in any batch. It means that you can win your age category even if you start in batch C for instance.
• There is no specific School XCM Series batch. School XCM Series riders will be seeded on merit alongside the regular Trailseeker riders.
• To better accommodate the School XCM Series riders, the top 25 male and top 10 female School Series riders in both the Fun Race and Half Marathon will be seeded in the respective A-Batches (A-Men and A-Ladies).
Although race day is about the riders and having them fueled up at the water points, we did not forget about our spectators. Come and cheer on your favourite riders at Sefudi Coffee Shop! Enjoy a festive vibe in a beautiful setting and watch the race unfold.
