The DBX2020 mountain bike challenge returns for the seventh consecutive year on Saturday, 12 September 2020.One of the most anticipated single-day races in the Western Cape, DBX2020 takes place in Darling with all four routes beginning and ending at Darling Brew.Entrants can choose their challenge, with routes ranging from the scenic 15km ‘Slow Beer’ in and around the quaint town of Darling to the super endurance 80km ‘Bone Crusher’, which follows cattle trails, jeep tracks and farm roads to take you through vineyards, olive orchards and fynbos trails.Event hosts, Darling Brew, together with event sponsors Retail Capital, offer riders and spectators a day to remember with family friendly surroundings at the Brewery, live music and local produce as well as a chance to taste our wide range of locally brewed craft beer.Each DBX2020 route is named after one of Darling Brew’s quaffable beers. Designed with experienced MTB riders in mind, the challenging 80km ‘Bone Crusher’ route will have you climbing from the get-go. The first half is full of hills, with the biggest hill of the day rewarding participants with a spectacular view of Darling and Table Mountain in the distance. A fast and steep descent follows, with cattle trails and a challenging single track.This year an exciting addition is that the Bone Crusher cyclists will ride through Doornfontein Private Game Farm, with the chance to spot giraffe and other game species. The classic 50km ‘Long Claw’ route shows riders the breath-taking scenery on the far side of Darling with the 23km loop through Wolwefontein Farm incorporating single track, steep climbs, fast descents, switchback corners with berms and ramp-bridges. The Long Claw riders will be treated to a ride through Doornfontein Private Game Farm and a chance to do some game spotting.The 30km ‘Blood Serpent’ route requires a reasonable amount of fitness. It promises a decent work-out for riders who are not quite ready for the longer routes. Entrants will get to experience all the spectacular views without having to concentrate on single tracks. The popular 15km beginners and family friendly ‘Slow Beer’ route takes riders all around Darling. This short route is still mountain biking so be prepared for a bit of trail riding too.All riders are welcomed back to the Brewery with a cold Darling Brew beer at the finish line.
