Well done to everyone competing in this year’s BSi Steel dusi2c! Although it is downhill to Durban and we remain in the river valley this is a tough little route with plenty of technical and challenging sections. Well done to all of you.
It is always great motivation for us to see so many happy faces with appreciative riders out on the route, crossing the finish line and in the race village is what drives us to do more. Thank-you to all of you for making this year possible and supporting the event and the communities through which we passed. The post event emails received from many of you are appreciated and the kind words go along way. Please feel free to send any constructive criticism through to me. This is one of the ways we improve year on year.
CHANGES PLANNED FOR 2016:
Although we have not held our post mortem meeting as yet you have my assurance that no matter how popular BSi dusi2c becomes we will limit numbers to 300 teams. We will make every effort to keep the event character. That is for Real Mountain bikers riding real trails without all the frills and fuss.
I continue to actively participate in many stage races though out our special country. The more events I do the more I appreciate how fortunate we are to have so many good events on our calendar. I think that it is important that each event builds on its own unique character. Some of the characteristics of dusi2c that we will keep and enhance on are:
Limit numbers to 300 teams.
No frills. No Wi-Fi villages. No chill Zones, just Black Label Quarts on the rocks.
Prepare more river frontage campsites to drown out the snoring.
Challenging, technical, all manageable but safe trails.
Support of the development riders in the valley.
Our relaxed but professional relationship with our sponsors and partners. BSi Steel, Subaru, Talisman, Super group, aQuelle, Clover, Easy GIS, Natal Canoe Club, Maritzburg College, DUCT, Durban Green Corridor and the SAPS mountain bike club.
A passionate crew with 24/7 smiley faces and a genuine love for the event and its riders.
