Celebrating its 6th anniversary on Saturday, 24 and Sunday, 25 November 2018, South Africa’s premier 2-day MTB Experience, the Origin Of Trails MTB Experience will boast an exciting Big Box Junction as part of the 2018 route experience.

“A valued partner of many Stillwater Sports events, Big Box Containers are versatile, functional and add to the experience of each event,” says Michael Meyer, Managing Director Stillwater Sports.  “A prime example is our Rialto Coffee Shop, which is essentially a Big Box Container that has been equipped and converted into a fully functioning coffee shop.  This year, however, we are excited to go one step further by incorporating two Big Box Containers into the route experience.  Stationed in the festival village riders will make their way through and/or over the Big Box Junction just before they cross the finish line.  This is sure to be a treat both for riders and spectators alike.”

“The Origin Of Trails is iconic in that it celebrates the start of mountain biking in South Africa,” says Willie Ward, Director Big Box Containers.  “Besides for our obvious love of the sport, we are proud to be a partner of the event as it allows us to showcase just how versatile the Big Box Containers are.   Shipping containers are blank canvasses. They can be converted to meet almost any need because they offer security and versatility. A race village can be created around containers almost overnight. Our container work is commercially viable for the same reason.  It is cost effective, flexible and safe.  This year we are really excited to also be part of the route experience.”

According to Massimiliano Mosca, Sales Representative: Rialto Foods, the Big Box Containers work perfectly as a Rialto Coffee Shop at the Origin Of Trails MTB Experience.  “The Big Box Containers are relatively easy to transport, they are functional and offer security while still giving the coffee shop comfort to customers.  We look forward to being part of the action of the 6th annual event and cannot wait to experience the best MTB trails on offer in Stellenbosch.”
