GRADE 10 pupil, William Luxford completed the “Impi Hard Enduro” at Tugela Ferry this past weekend.

This is one of the toughest endurance races of the year, where competitors raced for three days.

On the Thursday racers did 30km time trials to see where they would start the next day.

The top 50 riders started first the next day, of which William was one having placed 24th.

There were 600 riders seeded as gold, silver or bronze. William obtained gold.

On the Friday competitors raced 120km through very rough terrain and crossing rivers which took seven to nine hours. Saturday was a repeat of Friday.

Congratulations to William who finished 15th overall and earned a gold accolade.
