Johannesburg - South Africa's national mountain bike cross-country and downhill season gets underway this weekend, with the first series in the Western Cape.

The event which attracted South Africa's top performers in the elite men and women's groups of this Olympic mountain biking discipline, provided the participants a chance to better their International Cycling Union (UCI) world ranking by earning points at home early in the season.

For the second consecutive year, the Slammer track at Willowbridge Mall will host the cross-country discipline while downhill riders will be racing at the Jonkershoek track in Stellenbosch.

The series provided Cycling SA the chance to see the best in action and select a possible team to represent the country at the UCI MTB World Championships.
