Rub shoulders with Springbok rugby legend, Hennie le Roux, at the Kariega MTB Classic. This event has been his brain child and meanders through his home grounds... the Kariega Valley. It started out as a social event but it has gained great popularity over the past 2 years so as race owner, he has decided to upgrade it to an official event and open it up to the public as the perfect holiday event for the whole family to enjoy.
