The Old Mutual joBerg2c Race, a 900 km long mountain bike race through South Africa. 27 April to 5 May 2012

team-androgon participates and will report on …

The Old Mutual joBerg2c is riding the off-roads less travelled and trails never travelled. It is racing, riding and touring across this magnificent country. It is sharing a passion for mountain biking with those who love riding. Our aim is to provide a journey where the destination is less important than the experience along the way.

The creators of South Africa’s two favourite mountain bike stage races, have developed a ride that is set to capture the imagination of passionate mountain bikers across the country, if not the world.

Starting in the south of Joburg and finishing nine days later at Scottburgh at the coast, this ride is the best of the two great stage races and more.

The Old Mutual joBerg2c is part race and part adventure. It will take competitors through the country, from the heat and dust of the big city to the cool crisp air of the sea via spectacular mountainous passes. The same community-driven formula used for South Africa”s two favourite mountain bike stage races will be used along the way. This has the incredible effect of uplifting communities and of giving them a foolproof way to raise money for their schools, churches and charities. Every organisation who works on the Old Mutual joBerg2c will be paid. From road crossings to watering points, it is a way for these communities to raise money and work together for fun.

In Old Mutual we have a found a sponsor that is committed to the vision of the event. It will not just be about media exposure, of which there will be plenty; it is about an association with a lifestyle and about our sponsors being excited to be part of the event.
