“We’re proud to continue enhancing the experience of SA’s MTB Party of the year by offering entrants the exciting opportunity to win an incredible mountain bike at the 2023 Savanna Origin of Trails, courtesy of our esteemed bicycle partner, Giant,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director of Stillwater Sports and Event Founder. “All paid entrants stand a chance to secure this remarkable prize.

It truly is as simple as that.”

“The Giant Stance 2 is an aluminium, full suspension singletrack slayer,” says Luke Lockhart-Ross, Marketing Manager: Dragons Sports. “As modern mountain bike trails become more fun, flowy, and challenging, riders are required to be in sync with the terrain. This full suspension 29er will handle anything and everything that could be thrown at it with ease. With the Savanna Origin of Trails being all about fun, we knew that the Giant Stance 2 would be the perfect match as it is a bike that unlocks the fun on the trails.”

“The Giant Stance 2 is an ideal choice for both newcomers eager to explore new trails and experienced riders seeking to elevate their trail-riding prowess,” continues Lockhart-Ross. “Its ALUXX aluminium frame strikes the perfect balance between lightweight and durability, while featuring a FlexPoint rear suspension system that ensures a smooth, controlled ride. With 120mm of rear suspension travel and 130mm upfront, coupled with the stability of 29-inch wheels, this bike offers a confident and exhilarating experience. It’s your ticket to conquering challenging descents and scaling inclines with enhanced traction and speed. We can’t wait to close off the action of SA’s MTB Party of the year by rewarding one lucky entrant with this remarkable prize.”
