The #RidetheHunt Challenge

#RidetheHunt is a 5 stage virtual challenge taking place between May and September 2019, where participants are required to complete certain actions or tasks and cycle a minimum distance to progress to the next stage. Participant teams accumulate points during the stages with the overall winner the team with the highest number of points at 00:00 on 30 September 2019.

The Challenges

In celebration of 51 years as South Africa’s leading bespoke jeweller, Uwe Koetter presents the RISE challenge.

Achieve the greatest weighted ascent between June and November 2019 and take away bragging rights as well as your share of R51 000 in prizes.

Prizes

Position Prize Value
First Place R30 000
Second Place R15 000
Third Place R6 000

 

The Winning Formula

Weighted ascent takes into account the relative effort over the challenge period compared to the same period one year earlier. Simply, it is your achievement X by your effort.

The Formula:

Ascent in meters X (Personal Bests (June – November 2019) / Personal Bests (June – November 2018)) = Weighted Ascent

Examples:

12 000 meters x (15 PBs / 25PBs) = 7200 meters weighted ascent.

12 000 meters (25 PBs / 15 PBs) = 20 000 meters weighted ascent.

To ensure fairness across the board, we have chosen to limited the maximum multiplier to 2.

For Stage 2, we’re going for quality over quantity. Here’s your challenge:

> Complete the Wild Boar Trail on Val du Charron to progress to Stage 3.

> Tag @wildboartrails, @valducharronwines, @uwekoetterjewellers on Facebook and val-du-charron-wine-leisure-estate and @uwe_koetter on Instagram. Remember the tags – #uwekoetter #stage2 and #ridethehunt

Chas Everitt Around the Pot, Overberg 100-Miler @ Swellendam Showgrounds, Swellendam, Western Cape
Jul 20 @ 6:00 am – 7:00 am

2019 Chas Everitt Around the Pot, Overberg 100-Miler

 

The 2019 Chas Everitt Around the Pot, Overberg 100-Miler, is set to take place on Saturday 20 July from the Swellendam Showgrounds. The event not only features the flagship 160 kilometre distance but also offers 60-miler and 25-miler routes for less fit riders. Entries to all three distances opened on the 1st of November 2018 and if you enter before 31 January 2019 you will benefit from an early bird entry discount.

 

A significant part of the Chas Everitt Around the Pot appeal, beyond the spectacular route through the rolling Rûens of the Overberg is the fact that it is gravel bike friendly. In 2018 the men’s champion, HB Kruger, was victorious on a full suspension mountain bike; while the women’s champion, Kylie Hannekom, raced to her win on a gravel bike. The jury is still out then on which style of machine is truly faster over the 100-mile course. Perhaps the 2019 edition will reveal the answer decisively?

2019 BUCO Dr Evil Classic @ Plettenberg Bay, Western Cape
Sep 19 @ 6:00 am – Sep 21 @ 7:00 am

The 2019 BUCO Dr Evil is set to take place from Thursday 19th to Saturday 21st of September. Riders will once again be treated to three days of exceptionally scenic Garden Route mountain biking with each stage starting and finishing in a unique location near Plettenberg Bay.

The opening stage and registration will once again be hosted by the Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve, where big game sightings are guaranteed in the early and final kilometres of the stage. Stage 1 is the longest and arguably the most challenging of the race at 72 kilometres in length with 1 350 meters of climbing – but the views over the foothills of the Outeniqua Mountains more than make up for any difficulties.

Stage 2 starts and finishes on the manicured fields of the Kurland Hotel and Polo Estate. The second day’s route is a manageable 45 kilometres in length and includes 980 meters of climbing though plantations and indigenous forests. The final stage of the race is hosted by the Cairnbrogie Farm and boasts the area’s best singletracks. Coastal and forest trails make up the bulk of the 51 kilometre route which takes in 850 meters of climbing though the Harkerville Forest section of the Garden Route National Park.

Entries to the BUCO Dr Evil Classic are open and the entry packages include dinner at registration on Wednesday the 18th of September, as well as lunches on all three race days. Supporter meal tickets can be purchased for non-riding guests too, which helps make the Dr Evil Classic a family friendly event. In 2019 entries will be limited to 350 riders and the entry fees of R4 350 for solo entries and R8 700 for teams of two apply. To enter the 2019 BUCO Dr Evil Classic please visit www.drevilclassic.com; or email Zandile at zandile@drevilclassic.com, to avoid the online entry administration fee.
