The Details


The Western Cape Downhill Cup is set to take place at the recently constructed trail located in the highly sought-after Spice Route Destination in Paarl. This location boasts a wide range of attractions, including fantastic restaurants, craft beer and gin breweries, as well as ice cream artisans. Moreover, the venue offers several activities suitable for the whole family. The terrain and views of southern Paarl leading to Cape Town are breath taking, setting the stage for an unforgettable event.

The WC Downhill Cup is a highly anticipated sporting event, drawing athletes from across the Western Cape who are eager to earn points towards their national ranking. With the South African Champs also taking place at the same venue only weeks later, this event is sure to have a large turnout. Downhill, much like XCO, is an exhilarating and spectator-friendly sport that typically attracts a 3-to-1 ratio of spectators to athletes, creating a lively atmosphere.
