Durbanville (Cape Town) – Fedhealth XTERRA heroes Stuart Marais, Bradley Weiss and Matthew Daneel have joined forces to take on the fast paced ISUZU 3km Team Relay at Meerendal Wine Estate on Saturday, 05 September 2015 as part of the inaugural ISUZU MTB Festival Cape Town.

According to Alexa Cunningham, MTB Events Manager of Stillwater Sports, the ISUZU 3km Team Relay will feature a fast, flat route with some surprises along the way.  “With a fast course, this event is great for participants and spectators alike.  Mountain bikers are encouraged to challenge their friends, colleagues and/or family members. Category winners (men’s, women’s and mixed teams) will take home stunning trophies and awesome hampers compliments of ISUZU.”

Although off road triathlon is their forte, XTERRA Warriors have proven on many occasions that their mountain biking abilities should not be underestimated.

“We always play to win,” laughs Marais.  “It is great to see ISUZU go the extra mile to make our local events bigger and better, both for XTERRA and mountain biking.”

According to Weiss, it is seldom that elite XTERRA athletes get to compete as part of a team.  “I am really looking forward to competing as part of a team and can’t wait to brainstorm the optimal team race strategy.”

“I am excited to team up with two of South Africa’s best XTERRA athletes,” adds Daneel.  “Stuart and Bradley are both personal friends of mine and I have a huge amount of respect for them.  It will be a whole new dynamic racing with them instead of racing against them.”

The first 130 teams to enter the ISUZU 3km Team Relay will each receive a stunning ISUZU branded headband, an awesome ISUZU branded event t-shirt and a free bike wash compliments of Muc-Off.

The ISUZU MTB Festival Cape Town will cater for mountain bikers of all ages and expertise.
