WHAT do you get when you bring together 15 elite athletes and sporting personalities from various disciplines?

Banter, good vibes and camaraderie off the field, and fierce competition on it.

The inaugural Oakley X-Over in Jeffreys Bay saw the likes of Jordy Smith, Butch James, Greg Minnaar and Garreth McLellan compete in a unique cross-over event featuring mountain-biking, surfing and golf.

This year they’re doing it all again.

Competing in the tournament will be a selection of top Oakley athletes.

Butch James, crowned the inaugural Oakley X-Over champion, will be back to defend his title against Jordy Smith, Greg Minnaar and Garret “Soldier Boy” McLellan, who will be looking to avenge his last place in 2014.

Also returning to the event is Bob Skinstad, David Miller, John Smit, Kevin Evans, Ruan de Smidt and Raynard Tissink. New on the scene are Lance Isaacs and Dale Steyn.

This year a member of the public could be joining them. Oakley is reserving the final spot in the competition for an average Joe Street.
