It made me sit back for a while and think about the event. It had a vibe to it, that I believe only Burry

could bring to an event, but that I also take from it a very important message. “TIME!” You cannot give

anyone, anything more of value, then “TIME!” With the Lake Eland Quattro Classic 2015, this is exactly

it, so many people, from Mr Dunston and his family, Jennifer and her staff at Lake Eland, the sponsors,

Quattro, Roots of creations (medals) South Coast Tourism, local news media, Andre Beneke (safety

officer and member of Port Shepstone Lion’s) Med-Evac ambulance services, Roag administration and

everyone that assisted with registration, The Burry Stander Foundation Committee (without giving their

valuable time, this event will never happen) Gallagher Steel Art (Trophy’s) Mad Ant Entertainment,

Woz’Bona Photography, riders, families, spectators, everybody gave some of their valuable “TIME!” to

make this 2015 Lake Eland Quattro Classic powered by the Burry Stander Foundation a memorable


It was an above average warm day, with only 3 water table in the 25km and 45km, it was decided to get

the local business involved next year. There will be 4 water tables. We will have a prize for the best

water table, which the riders will vote for.

Everyone agreed that the route for the 10km,25km and 45km was real mountain bike trails, with a good

balance of single track and technical challenges. We thank Charles Stander and the Burry Stander

Foundation team for the time, spend on the trails, marking and cleaning.

Please take note, that these trails are open all year! Not to forget all the other activities, you can enjoy

at Lake Eland. This is what make Lake Eland a true “gem” to explore and keep everyone in the family

town. Here we can market the local accommodation and activities on offer more.

the beautiful photos, which will go on sale soon. All proceeds’ will to the Burry Stander Foundation.
