The second leg of Ultimate Sports Nutrition’s (USN) MTB Cup series took place this past weekend on Saturday, 15 February at the Modderfontein Reserve, Gauteng. This venue has proved to be one of the most popular with Gauteng-based cyclists and once again, an atmosphere of excitement and enthusiasm resonated throughout the venue as cyclists turned up in their droves.
With the first leg of the USN MTB Cup ending on a high note, the standard had been set for the 2014 series. Last year’s men’s champion Arno Du Toit once again took centre stage as he raced against many new hopefuls and a number of seasoned professionals on the spectacular route.
Andrew Grobler, Race Director and Event Organiser says, “The success of the second race has come as no surprise to us as this has become a hotspot for cycling in Gauteng. We had worked hard on the course in preparation for the expected numbers; we were blown away with the demand for entries and the calibre of cyclists that turned up promises that the future races will be as spectacular.”
As the races continued throughout the day, it become clear that the local scenery and varying terrain that the Modderfontein reserve offered was a big hit for not only those riders participating for the first time, but also for those who have raced at the venue before.
USN’s was on hand with regular hydration stations offering vital performance supplementation for the riders making their way through the various distances on offer. As is customary, everyone who finished was rewarded with an ice-cold USN Spike to start the rehydration and recovery process.
As the dust settled and the races came to an end, the crowds waited in anticipation as the results were processed:
The overall winners of the USN MTB Cup #2 2014 are:
50km: Arno du Toit
30km: Michael Ferreira
10km: Nathan Badenhorst
50km: Janine King

“With plans for the next race in the series already underway, we are looking forward to another fresh and exciting racing experience,” concluded Grobler.
