Mountainbike: Hollard JUMA

Over 3000 cyclists converged on Marks Park on Sunday 28th 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 colossal storm water drains, two 120-meter long floating bridges, sky-high scaffolding and a 700-meter Anatomic tunnel and much more to explore. With a course build worth over R1.5 million it’s a race to mark off on your calendars.

“Every year we focus on improving the event and the riders weren’t disappointed! There were less road crossings, even more urban sections to explore and a ton of new surprises along the route. We’d like to congratulate each and every rider that participated. The Hollard JUMA is tough but the riders are even tougher!” said Mark Castel, Event Organiser, BAM Specialist Event and Experience Creators.

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