Riders Explore Jo’burg’s Underbelly At JUMA

Over 3,000 cyclists converged on Marks Park on Sunday, 28 May 2017 to explore and race through the underbelly of Johannesburg for the Hollard JUMA.

The Hollard JUMA is not your average mountain bike race, with 5km of storm water drains, two 120m floating bridges, sky-high scaffolding and a 700m Anatomic tunnel, with much more to explore. The course build project was worth over R1.5 million.

This year there were also fewer road crossings, more urban sections, and many new surprises along the route.

After riders completed their adventure cash prizes were awarded for the traditional competitive categories, as well as prizes for more fun categories from BMX, and best dressed.
