ROUTE PREP What happens behind the scenes so you can have the perfect ride. “Over the past few months, early every morning, Philaani and his team left Mangena Farm in his army-brown Land Cruiser, packed with racks, hoes, picks and slashers for their day of work on the route. This team has walked the entire length of the course you will be cycling. They slashed, hoed, dug, scraped, racked and hammered it to the perfect form it is now. Remember them while you’re bombing down the single tracks, not having to worry about sticks or rocks. They are very proud of the sections they have cleaned and hope that you enjoy your ride from Sani Pass to the Sea!” – Farmer Glen sani2c | MTB | 143
