Olympian Richard Murray and reigning XTERRA SA champion Carla Van Huyssteen were on fire in Elgin Grabouw (Western Cape) on Sunday, 24 February 2013 at the TOTALSPORTS XTERRA South African Championship presented by REHIDRAT® SPORT completing the 1.5km swim, 27km mountain bike and 11km trail run first in the men’s and women’s category in combined times of 02hours23minutes02seconds and 02hours51minutes01seconds respectively.
The picturesque Buffelspoort Dam (North West Province) was a hub of excitement on Saturday, 26 January 2013 with 800 multisport warriors toeing the line at the Totalsports XTERRA Full presented by Rehidrat® Sport. Defending men’s and women’s champions Conrad Stoltz and Carla Van Huyssteen came out with guns a blazing. Leaving no room for error, they took the lead early in the race and never looked back, crossing the finish line in spectacular times of 2hr22min52sec and 2hr49min56sec respectively.
Just under 900 multi-sport athletes and sport enthusiasts were seen in action on Saturday, 12 January 2013 at the 11th annual Totalsports Challenge presented by Liberty Medical Scheme and REHIDRAT® SPORT that started in Gordon’s Bay and finished in Kleinmond.
Due to windy weather conditions experienced in Gordon’s Bay, the 12km surfski discipline had to be cancelled for participant safety. This meant that for the first time in the history of the event the Totalsports Challenge started with a 1km swim discipline.
Excitement has risen to fever pitch as participants and spectators alike prepare to bear witness to a battle of note when reigning Totalsports Challenge champion, Dan Hugo and challenger, Stuart Marais return to Kleinmond on Saturday, 12 January 2013 for round two at the Totalsports Challenge presented by Liberty Medical Scheme and REHIDRAT® SPORT.
Four times XTERRA World Champion Conrad Stoltz and top South African XTERRA Warrior Carla Van Huyssteen were not leaving anything to chance on Sunday, 26 February 2012 when they took on the Totalsports XTERRA South African Championship presented by REHIDRAT® SPORT in Grabouw.
It’s Xterra fever in Cape Town (and South Africa) this weekend. The race just seems to grow and grow, and is now split over two days. I’m not sure why the Shongweni Dam leg in KZN never worked, because they probably have the most extensive off-road multisport calendar (maybe that’s the answer!). Totalsports have taken this over from sister store Due South and have the store footprint to leverage it further.
Reigning 2011 XTERRA Grabouw Champions Dan Hugo (Stellenbosch, South Africa) and Carina Wasle (Austria) will have to keep their wits about them on Sunday, 26 February 2012 when they return to Grabouw Country Club to defend their titles at the 2012 Totalsports XTERRA South African Championship presented by REHIDRAT® SPORT.
Reigning individual men’s and women’s champions, Conrad Stoltz and Carla Van Huyssteen expected nothing less than a battle when they returned to Buffelspoort Dam on Saturday, 28 January 2012 to defend their titles at the gruelling TOTALSPORTS XTERRA Buffelspoort Full presented by REHIDRAT® SPORT.
