A multi-sport competitor, Frederic Ischard has just participated in the Old Mutual Johannesburg 2c, a gruelling but uplifting 900km mountain bike stage ride in South Africa. He will sweat it out elbow-to-elbow against Mathieu Desserprit, winner of the 2015 Mountain Bike Championship of Reunion and Christopher Wolhuter, one of South Africas top mountain bikers, in this unique four-stage mountain bike race which provides a challenging and fun-packed experience across wild and varied terrain.
During the four race days, participants will cover a total distance of 200km, including a mind-blowing 80km stage from the foot of the spectacular Morne Brabant Mountain in the south-west to the beaches in the south-east, a sensation-rich 40km leg from Shandrani Resort & Spa a 5-star Beachcomber hotel in the south-east of Mauritius to the centre with magnificent views of the island, a 24km night race and an ultimate 55km stage across varied terrain rounded off with a grand finale at Shandrani Resort & Spa. A detailed stage-by-stage description is also available on the Beachcomber Events website.
