Life has become much easier for PwC Great Zuurberg Trek route director Rob Hayter after Tavcor Commercial Vehicles sponsored a branded double cab Amarok in support of this mountain biking classic.

Taking place in the mountainous Zuurberg region in Addo, from May 26 to 28, the route will cover nearly 200km over three days. The trails spanned a wide variety of terrain, often in remote areas, which you could only reach in a 4x4 vehicle capable of handling the rugged conditions.

“Now I can get to anywhere in the Addo Elephant National Park, as well as the many isolated areas we have to access. It is much easier to travel to the areas where we have to clean and clear the track,” said Hayter.

He said the whole route had to be marked with signs and arrows, often traversing rough conditions, and the Amarok had made it much easier to complete the work required.
