Details: 60km/h is about the fastest you’ll get on this hill but that doesn’t mean it’s not technically challenging or any fun. The hill is 1.7km long and has more corners than any other race in South Africa. After the push-off the course is at its steepest, and also features the fastest corner of the track, The Big Left. Here you’ll need to maintain as much speed as possible to keep up with competition through the long ‘Pearly Gates Straight’. After the Pearly Gates, the riders enter a set of S-bends which leads to the decider on the course, “The Chicane”. The Chicane is two 90 degree corners directly one after the other, hard right into a harder left. Riders usually bunch up at this point and a good line through the chicane will determine the winner. This is also the part of the course where spectators and off-track entertainment are situated and it always makes for an exciting racing experience.
