Calling all off-road experts

Entries are open for both the second and third leg of the 2010/2011 Duesouth Xterra presented by Rehidrat® taking place at Buffelspoort Dam and Grabouw Country Club respectively.

Xterra warriors can also enter the first leg of the 2011/2012 Duesouth Xterra taking place in Knysna next year.

The country’s top multisport and lifestyle athletes are in action at these events, which have proven to be a treat for outdoor enthusiasts and spectators alike.

The event takes the form of an off-road triathlon where competitors can partake individually or in teams of three.  Newcomers to the sport can opt for the less daunting Xterra Lite, which is approximately half the distance of the Xterra Full.

The third and final leg of the Xterra at Grabouw Country Club takes the form of the South African finals, which in turn forms part of the Xterra World Tour.  Athletes competing at this event stand the chance to qualify for the world championship final in Hawaii.
