De Wildt Funduro
If you live in Gauteng and have not heard of the De Wildt Funduro before, man where you been? This is probably the largest Funduro event in the area and amongst the top in the country!
Now in it’s 7th year, the primary objective of the Funduro is to bolster funds for the Laerskool Vissershoek, the oldest Farm school in Gauteng.
This event is not to be missed. The track will have a gutsy mix of river beds, mountain streams, rocky hills and some unused quarries, with short sections of old farming roads and ploughed fields to get some carbon out of the system!
On the track there will be sections where riders will be separated. The latter being the mild “Lemon and Herb“route.
And then there is the monster!, the legend , the bone breaker and the widow maker . Call it what you like, we call it : The Peri-Peri route. I’m not sure why some cry along the route, why others use foul language and some arrange a meet and greet with Mother Earth on this particular day. This route is for the guys and girls that have guts of steel and the willpower to be amongst the few that can say, “I conquered the Peri- Peri at de Wildt“. The survivors are rewarded with a annual finishers decal.
The Route will take you into the koppies and the foothills of the Magalies Mountains, on route you will be challenged with some river beds, forests , Jeep tracks , off camber rock face and gravel pits . You will often reach the redline in the wetlands and do some whipping in the old quarries . And then you are still left with Pirelli hill , JT river , SAB swamp , BB Boulders , Moleko crossing , RFS Tree stumps and Nomadic Naboom Canopies …
