HB Kruger won the 80km Knysna Cycle Tour MTB Race at the Knysna Oyster Festival today.
The Team Telkom rider crossed the line in 3:01:50, with USN-Purefit’s Waylon Woolcock taking second in 3:01:51 to edge out Cannondale-RED-E’s Matthew Beers.
Speaking after the race, Kruger said the conditions were quite technical.
“It was very muddy and I had actually deflated my tyres too much and had to stop to bomb them to get the pressure up again. But it was a nice route and a good challenge.”
Kruger, who won the mountain bike title for the first time, will join team-mates Nolan Hoffman and Reynard Butler in tomorrow’s 115km road race.
