This year the Momentum Knysna Cycle Tour will introduce the new MTB weight division, the TREAD Buffalo Category, to the 50 km mountain bike race on Saturday, 8 July.
The new weight category was created by Sean Badenhorst, founder of the TREAD – Mountain Biking with Soul brand in 2014 to enable heavier riders to compete competitively in major races. By adding a Buffalo Category, the Knysna Cycle Tour will be giving a competitive element to those mountain bikers who cannot compete with lighter, faster riders.
Riders who weigh 90 kg or more can become a TREAD Buffalo simply by registering on the website: www.treadbuffalo.co.za. You will then confirm your participation via a weigh-in on the scales at race registration. Or you can sign up at registration on Friday, 7 July 2017.
