Mountain biking aficionados will be able to satisfy their adventure cravings once again at this years Fairtree Simonsberg Contour two-day mountain bike stage race on Saturday, 3 and Sunday, 4 February 2018. The two-day event will see riders setting off and ending the race at Delvera Farm on the R44.
