One of South Africa’s oldest wine estates, Boschendal, will host the Fedhealth MTB challenge on Saturday September 7 and Sunday September 8.  “It’s great to be the host venue of the event,” says Chris Norton, Boschendal Farm Estate trail centre manager.  “It features a distance for everyone. Be sure to sign up for the distance that you know you are capable of and you will have a great day on the bike.” The event caters for children up to 13 years old, with junior MTB enthusiasts choosing between the 500m (0 to 5 years), 1.5km (6 to 9 years) and 5km (10 to 13 years) events.
