This year the JBay Winterfest inaugurated a brand new event, being the JBay Loggers Classic, held at Lower Point over the weekend.

A logging competition has a few rules, which make it differ from normal longboarding surf contests. They are thus:

  • The boards needs to be a minimum length of 9’2, with most surfers actually riding boards between 9’4 and 9’6.
  • The boards need to be a minimum of 6kg in weight. They also need to be purpose-built single fins, with the one fin either glassed or in a box, but there is no allowance for side boxes.
  • There is a general no interference rule, as well as a general rule of no hassling or dropping in. The logging ideology is more about sharing and having fun than being overly competitive.

The tournament enjoyed very good surfing conditions the entire weekend, coupled with great weather, some live music on the beach, and excellent surfing performances.

JBay Winterfest Wraps Up – JBay Wind Farm MTB Classic Results

JBay Winterfest Wraps Up – JBay Wind Farm MTB Classic Results

24/07/2017, Jeffreys Bay, Multi Sports, J-Bay Open , Article # 23417749

The fifth edition of the JBay Wind Farm MTB Classic took place on Saturday 22 July in perfect conditions. Some 500 riders of all ages and skill levels took to the trails around the Eastern Cape holiday town of Jeffreys Bay over three distances, 25km, 50km and the gruelling 85km ultra marathon.

At the sharp end of the ultra marathon it was a tight two-horse race, with East London’s Jason Reed and Max Sullivan from Stellenbosch working well together from early on.

Reed eventually managed to breakaway from Sullivan in the Wind Farm and claimed the victory (and the R10 000 first prize) in a time of 03:20:41. Sullivan came in second (03:21:19), with 2016 defending champion, Ndumiso ‘Maza’ Dontso, rounding out the podium.

The ultra featured an almost entirely new route, with various sections of purpose-built singletrack having been added. “It was a great mix of singletrack and jeep track,” Reed said. “It was tough, rocky and technical with a lots of corners, braking and accelerating. Definitely suited to ‘real’ mountain bikers,” he said.

While Reed, De Villiers and co were battling it out at the sharp end of the field of around 500, other mountain bikers enjoyed the perfect Eastern Cape winter conditions to ride the only one-day event of its kind to traverse a wind farm.

“As one of the local industries in the area, we are really proud to continue to be a part of this event,” commented Mark Pickering, Managing Director of the Jeffreys Bay Wind Farm, who himself completed the 25-kilometre route. “It is fantastic to see the race improve each year. Every year there are more riders and more support and we have seen a lot of innovation, particularly in the 85km route, where a lot of new track has been,” he said.

“Max and I have very similar technical skills, so we used that to our advantage to get a gap in the first singletrack,” Reed commented afterward. “We shared the pace and worked hard, Max has a big engine on the flats and then coming into the last climb I saw he was beginning to tire so I pushed really hard and got a small gap.”

In the women’s race, Yolande de Villiers successfully defended her title, ousting three time defending champion, Anriëtte Schoeman in a time of 03:34:44 to finish sixth overall.

Full results for all the routes will be available at www.mountainevents.co.za later on Saturday and keep a watch on the Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/jbaywindfarmmtbclassic/) for image galleries over the next two days.

The JBay Loggers Classic had another excellent day down at Lower Point with some great surfing going down. It has been a remarkable run of surf in the JBay area that just doesn’t seem to be slowing down, and competitors were greeted by perfect three to four foot waves for the second day of competition. 

In the women’s division it was former WSL world champ Rachael Tilly (USA) as well as Lucy Small (AUS) who were stand-outs.

In the men’s pro division, solid surfing performances came from the likes of Ludi Du Toit, Tristan Lev, Michael Hill and Erik Knutson (HAW) who are all through to the quarterfinals. Men’s amateur division saw Lyell Watson, Chris Heath, Greg Smith, George Bunting and Carel Olivier all win their round three heats and will also be in the quarterfinals. The JBay Loggers Classic will conclude tomorrow.
