Totalsports XTERRA SA Champ ready for Pezula

After having to miss out on the 2013 event due to injury, reigning Totalsports XTERRA SA Champion Dan Hugo is eager to toe the line in Knysna at the fast paced Totalsports XTERRA Pezula presented by REHIDRAT® SPORT on Thursday, 10 July 2014.

“Last year it was terribly disappointing for me to be eager to race mentally, but unable physically,” says Hugo. “I am proud to be able to take part as a brand ambassador for Totalsports, Puma, REHIDRAT® and Specialized – all partners of mine and XTERRA South Africa. I am really looking forward to the week in Knysna. This is my philosophy to the sport of XTERRA, it is more than just two hours of racing, it is the drive up, staying with friends and family, pre-riding routes and visiting coffee shops. The Pick ‘n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival brings out the best of all that, including a wine show”.

“What I hope for is a fun, muddy, warm-fire kind of shared sporting experience,” continues Hugo. “My training and travel partner Bradley Weiss might be primed for a first XTERRA win. He is in phenomenal shape and the run-bike-run format of Totalsports XTERRA Pezula suits him well. The Totalspsorts XTERRA Pezula is the ideal excuse to leave work early. Make a long weekend of it, car pool to Knysna and get muddy in the forest. Come and live more”.

Forming part of the much loved Pick ‘n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival the Totalsports XTERRA Pezula is the only Totalsports XTERRA SA event that does not feature a water discipline, but instead follows a run, mountain bike, run format.
