Having spent five days in the saddle covering an all-new 400-kilometre route and tackling 10,000 metres of climbing, South African Team RECM rider, James Reid, has won the 2015 Trans Hajar Mountain Bike Race by a massive 12 minutes 58 seconds.
It was an all South African podium at the end of the multi-day stage race with James Reid’s fellow countrymen Max Knox (RSA) and Kevin Evans (RSA) rounding out the top three. Knox and Evans had been battling for second place throughout the race, but it was Knox who managed to take his 1-second advantage going in to the final stage and stretch it out to 1 minute 6 seconds as he crossed the finish line. Lead British rider was Matt Page, who finished 9th overall (16:40:50).
British rider and Former Cape Epic winner, Catherine Williamson (GBR), added another title to her name winning the Overall Female Category by a staggering 33 minutes 55 seconds ahead of Hungarian Champion Eszter Dosa (HUN).
