Overview of a XCO race at Stellenbosch in South Africa.

UCI MTB World Cup 2018, South Africa: XCO 1

Cape Town, Stellenbosch

Not since Pietermaritzburg hosted World Cup action back in 2014 have South African riders and fans had a home race to cheer, but this all changes in 2018 as Stellenbosch hosts the opening event of the season with an XCO-only round. With improvements on the existing track out of the University of Stellenbosch and onto Coetzenburg Mountain and great views expected for spectators, there should be plenty of top cross-country action in one of the Western Cape's most popular MTB hotspots.
