The TransBreede Ultra is a one-day MTB event comprising of 120km (or 60km for Half Ultra) on trails in Rawsonville, Slanghoek Valley and Bainskloof. Du Toitskloof Wines is the official host as the start and finish venue, so no transfers are needed, enough parking can be expected with shower facilities and a restaurant to be enjoyed after the race.
This is a tough course with high temperatures during summer, great single tracks, vineyard roads and mountainous areas with ascents of approximately 2100m.
"That was one seriously tough event! First half had some stunning trail through little known valleys at the back end of Rawsonville. Great epic training and a well marked route."

"If the pro's and semi-pro's offer advice....then you know it was a tough ride out there. The sand was a killer, but really enjoyed the first part, and all the single track. The last 20km were brutal though...hard climbing when fatigued and quite technical (which I loved). Knew what was coming having done a Slanghoek Tri with MTB section, but it still didn't make it easier. Was close to totally blowing, with some recurring cramps in the heat."
