“The main story”:

It goes back to a phone call, a coffee and a short site visit……….now it’s reality! Vicky Wentzel the brain trust behind the biggest event on the South Coast. It’s that simple, this is by far the biggest event that the KZN South Coast has and we are a part of it.

Brett Redman, Brenda Mills and I arrived at the site and immediately started picturing what you can expect to be an event to be spoken about for years to come. Besides the EnduroX the Festival promises to be breathtaking. The minute the gates open on the Friday morning the feeling of WOW will kick in like a Black Stallion hoofing you in the chest. (Check out the list below of all that’s happening in detail. Otherwise check out this link for more info http://southcoastbikefest.co.za/south-coast-bike-fest-programme/ )

Where are we going with this sport? EnduroX is by far the fastest growing Extreme Sport in the world, South Africa has dabbled in it here and there but no one has physically taken the leap of faith and taken it on and created a decent series and sustained it. The time is now, the time for proper EnduroX events in a stadium type environment is now. We at Powasol Eventing have taken the leap of faith under the auspices of Motorsport South Africa and have taken on the unthinkable and started the official MSA Sanctioned EnduroX Series. With the Royal Show as our first event in 2016 we have progressed and are geared up to bring to you the craziest one-day event to hit South Africa.

The standard build time for a EnduroX track is 4 – 6 Days, well believe this or not we have 12 Hours to build our track, yup 12 HOURS! Madness we know but we are positive that with the help of so many awesome people and businesses we will bring this event to the riders, spectators and sponsors by 7am Sunday morning when God turns on the lights. With the help of Milton Plant, TLB Plant Hire, Dezzi Equipment, Industrial Supply Centre, Amandlethu Pallets, R & B Group, Anderson Transport, Hayters Timber, Machine Moving & Engineering and Speddick Tyres we will bring a Top Class track for all to enjoy. We have picked up some obstacle sponsors like Extreme Safety, ASP Rope Access, Ford Stanger, Screen Graphics Africa, KTM Durban, LVR Investments, Custom Homes KZN, BombHQ and Powasol.
