The local Kremetart race has become a local institution since its inception more than two decades ago, not only in Louis Trichardt, but across the whole Soutpansberg region.
After a brief interlude, this year will see the Soutpansberg and its people host the 28thannual Kremetart Cycling Race during the weekend of 8 to 10 June. Due mostly to monetary constraints, the race had to be cancelled in 2017. But this year, thanks to enormous support from the local community, the Kremetart is once more able to continue.
Over the years, this event has gone from strength to strength. From its humble beginnings, the Kremetart attracted mostly local entries from the area, and the route did not even come close to covering the 175km it does today. As the race started to evolve, the route was changed to encompass the route around the Soutpansberg. Louis Trichardt is well known for its picturesque locality in the shade of the majestic Soutpansberg Mountain. The main race will take place around the Soutpansberg and offers panoramic views of the mountain. It finds its way past several stunning baobabs and other Bushveld vegetation.
