Hillcrest cycling brothers band together for largest race

The event organiser said having four brothers competing adds a remarkable chapter to the 250km KAP Sani2c legacy.

THIS year marks the 20th edition of the 250km KAP Sani2c, the world’s largest mountain bike stage race, which will take place from Himeville to Scottburgh next week. In a historic first for the well-known event, four brothers will be competing together.

The Camp brothers from Hillcrest (Steve, Martin and Peter), all avid mountain bikers, will be joined by their brother Richard, who has flown in from Canada specifically to participate in this milestone event.

“This is my first sani2c,” said Richard. “I’ve heard so much about it from family and friends that I thought it was time to experience it myself. Coming out of a long winter in Canada, I haven’t been able to train much, but hopefully, all goes well over the three-day event.”

“We are thrilled to witness this unique piece of history at this year’s sani2c,” said Mandy Hall, an event organiser.

“Having four brothers compete together for the first time in our event’s 20-year history adds a remarkable chapter to our legacy. It showcases the spirit of family and endurance that our race embodies. We wish the Camp brothers an incredible journey across the stunning trails from the mountains to the sea.”

The Camp brothers are riding for the Live for Life charity to raise awareness for local well-known mountain biker, Jason Hall, who was tragically paralysed in 2019 after a mountain-biking accident in Karkloof.
