Safire Baynesfield MTB Classic – 2016

The 2016 Safire Baynesfield MTB Classic took place at the scenic Baynesfield Estate south of Pietermaritzburg on Sunday 12 June, on a weekend when icy winter temperatures had most folk heading for the woolly clothing drawer.

The intrepid riders took on the chilly air and tackled the rolling trails with options of 10/20/45 and 65km routes to suit riders of all ages and fitness levels.

The winners were: Men: Derrin Smith (1st), Leeroy Emslie (2nd), Brandon Stewart (3rd) and Ladies: Frankie Du Toit (1st), Cindy Theunissen (2nd), Natalie Bergstrom (3rd).
