About Maarten

I have been an ambitious cyclist since the age of 11 when I first started to compete in races.  I participated in races all over South Africa, some parts of Africa as well as Europe.  In 1996 I built my first MTB track where after I helped with the built and design of numeral race tracks which includes both provincial and national race courses.  Due to this experience I have a clear understanding and feel with regard to track flow and design.

I started X-trax in 2007.  X-trax is a short but challenging technical MTB track located east of Pretoria.  With limited space, I managed to incorporate most of the technical obstacles that one could encounter in XC (cross country) racing.  X-trax MTB track is a suitable venue for mountain bikers to improve their technical skills and confidence.

Other than my history in racing and track development, I am also a motivated business owner and entrepreneur, and have developed numerous cycling products, including tyre sealant.  I take pride in my work, and have extensive knowledge of the sport.
