Global icons join 2016 uBhejane Xtreme

As organisers and participants alike gear up for the 2016 uBhejane Xtreme MTB Challenge which takes place on Saturday 10 December, three global icons have thrown their weight behind the 340km mountain biking event from Hillcrest to Hilltop Camp in Hluhluwe Game Reserve in spectacular KwaZulu-Natal’s Zululand region.

Global explorer and humanitarian, Kingsley Holgate, world renowned mountain adventurer, Sibusiso Vilane and “the voice of cycling”, Phil Liggett will all be a part of this year’s third edition of the grueling endurance cycling event that seeks to raise much needed funds for the fight against rhino poaching and awareness of the plight of the magnificent creatures.

Each enjoying the event in various capacities, the trio of inspirational personalities have backed the uBhejane Xtreme MTB Challenge due to their passion for this highly endangered species and can’t wait to spend some time sharing their thoughts on the matter, as well as a few tales from their mind-blowing adventures, with the event’s participants.
