1. Don’t over train

Train smart but ensure you come into the event fresh

 

2. Check all travel docs

Including visas and double-check passport dates, etc. especially if traveling from abroad

7. Isuzu Miele pick up point

Mornings at that time of year are very cold and middle of the day is very warm so bring arm warmers etc for early morning – we will have an pick up point at water point 1 each day to drop off your warm clothes

 

8. Tubeless tyres with sealant

You cannot ride joberg2c with tubes. You must have tubeless tyres. Make sure you check your sealant as it dries out after roughly 3 months. Top it up properly before joberg2c. If in doubt book you bike in for a pre-service
