Here follows a short video on the progress and creation of the Coetzenburg cross-country course: Construction of the Coetzenburg cross-country course in Stellenbosch started on 25 March 2015. Bennet Nel and his team at Ace of Spades have been tasked with the track building. Having hosted Western Province XCO Champs in May, South African XCO Champs will take place at Coetzenburg on 18 July.
For the SA XCO Champs, the course builders will be focusing on adding more technical features and including A and B lines. A lap of the course will be 5.3 kilometres with 210 metres of total ascent. The course is situated on Stellenbosch Universities' grounds (Coetzenburg Mountain) and will form part of their facilities.
