Jan Van Schalkwyk, left Stellenbosch University with his B.Comm Honn Management Accounting in 1995. He owns an export protea farm in Somerset West and has been building and operating MTB trails since 1997 –┬ádeveloping two MTB trail centres: Hermanus MTB Trails and Helderberg MTB Trails. Jan owns Euodia Cycles (MTB retail) in Hermanus and is a keen cyclist but even keener trail builder.

Andrew Neethling, a professional mountain biker for the past 12 years specializing in the sport of downhill. Turned pro in 2003 after completing school and his dedication, hard work and use of his talents have seen him excel and rack up wins and podiums across the world.  With his experience and years building trails for himself to practice on, it seems fitting that he has since developed a MTB trail centre with a partner in Somerset West, namely Helderberg Trails.
