Ike Klaassen wins last event of the year

Ike Klaassen in action.

Stellenbosch MTB rider and champion, 15-year-old Ike Klaassen of Stellenbosch, showed his skills at the Western Province championships at the Hellsend Dirt Compound, which is located on the farm where he lives. It was only the second race that has ever taken place at Hellsend, and it was an exciting event and a great race with a lot of people in attendance and competing.  The track has a long flow trail, and dirt jumps from beginner table-tops to advanced doubles. “It was cool to have an event here,” said Ike. “The track has been around for a while, and I wasn’t able to compete in the first race here, so this was my first time racing on the track.”
