De Wildt Funduro 2019
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 country!
Now in it’s 9th year, the primary objective of the Funduro is to bolster funds for the Laerskool Vissershoek, the oldest Farm school in Gauteng.
This year we have changed the track for the 2019 event, to make it even more technical and took it back to a distance of approx. 57 kilometres, on a combined loop .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 , the widow maker and personality maker . Call it what you like, we call it: The Peri-Peri route. We are 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. Jip some guys event leave their longs on the mountain . 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 in de Wildt“. The survivors are rewarded with an annual finisher’s 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 Grundfos junction, Raceworx flats, Afrit Boulders, Pirelli hill, Afgri crossing, Nomadik naboom canopies, Afrit stumps and, Meaty whoops …
Upon return to the DSP all riders are not treated equal … The Lemon and Herb riders get treated to some technical bits , Tyre pits , Camel backs , hoops , ramps and a mud pit . The peri Peri guys help us create some awesome footage …on the various obstacles. Every Peri Peri riders riding skill will be tested, whether it is the LCP see-saw, Nutri ramp, Liqui Moly balance beam, Mclaren concrete mountain , Envirocycle cardump or the Q4 trenches.
All finishers will be rewarded with a medal and memories to last a life time. We would like all riders to come and enjoy the warm hospitality, lots of refreshments and live entertainment. Do battle the de Wildt Funduro and earn a seat in the shade of the Marula tree!
