origin of trails

In addition to experiencing the best trails on offer in Stellenbosch at the 7th annual Savanna Origin of Trails MTB Experience

on Saturday 30 November 2019 and Sunday 01 December 2019, one lucky rider will take home a spectacular Specialized

Epic Comp EVO mountain bike to the value of R49 000.

“Specialized is proud to be the bicycle partner of the Savanna Origin of Trails MTB Experience,” says Kylie Hanekom, Specialized South Africa Marketing Specialist.  “We value the opportunity to be involved with a family orientated event that brings riders of all levels, ages and backgrounds together to celebrate a shared love of cycling.  Stellenbosch is home to some of the best trails in the country, and the Savanna Origin of Trails MTB Experience celebrates this in a social, family-orientated setting.  It’s fantastic that riders are encouraged to enjoy their surroundings and the social aspect of mountain-biking, instead of watching their watts and the clock with their head down.”

“Mountain biking does not have to be all about racing,” continues Hanekom.  “It’s a sport that everyone can enjoy. Our product range caters to riders of every level. We have something for every budget and performance range so that the whole family can enjoy the outdoors together.  The Specialized Epic Comp EVO is the perfect bike for enjoying the trails around Stellenbosch. With 120mm of travel, a dropper post, and slightly beefier tyres than the Epic – it dials up the fun factor, without losing any of the Epic’s legendary race-whip climbing prowess. We love it.”

“To stand a chance to win, entrants need to share a video from the Savanna Origin of Trails MTB Experience on Saturday and show us why they deserve to win.  The video must be uploaded to Instagram, follow and tag @specializedza #originoftrails #epicevo.  The most impressive video will win.  The winner will be announced during prize giving on Sunday.”

Junior mountain bikers are invited to test out Specialized’s kids bikes in the Event’s Kids Area on event day.
