Top South African XTERRA athlete, Dan Hugo will be back in action in January 2011 when he defends his title at the DUESOUTH XTERRA Buffelspoort presented by REHIDRAT® on Saturday, 29 January 2011.
Hugo took no prisoners in 2010 when he completed the XTERRA Buffelspoort course in an impressive time of 2:16:55. “I’m really looking forward to competing on South African soil again. It was great to see how the sport of XTERRA had grown over the last few years with the 2010 XTERRA Buffelspoort sporting close on 1000 entries. I’d like to encourage more people to join in the sport, you are sure to love it just as much as I do,” says Hugo.
Other top XTERRA athletes to look out for include Lieuwe Boonstra, Hanlie Booyens and Jeannie Bomford.
DUESOUTH XTERRA Warriors competing at Buffelspoort Dam can look forward to swimming in pristine mountain waters of the Magaliesberg. The mountain bike route will include diverse combination of quick and challenging single track, a rock garden, thick sand track, serious climbs up jeep track and a fun and winding single track descent through indigenous bushveld with spectacular views. The run discipline will pit runners against a few river crossings and a steep ascent into a private game reserve, where at the summit, runners may be rewarded with sightings of resident Wildebeest, Kudu, Blesbok and Impala.
