Inner City Enduro first for the Bay

2015-09-16 06:00

SOUTH Africa’s first ever Inner City Enduro (ICE) takes place in Port Elizabeth on Saturday, September 26, as part of the annual Urban Run Festival, hosted by the MBDA to highlight urban renewal, and will include multiple world extreme enduro champion David Knight.

ICE is what is capturing the imagination of the Extreme Enduro Riders and Fans alike all over the world and is about to set the streets of the PE CBD alight as the World champion takes on SA’s best in a last man standing format. Using natural and man-made obstacles around the historic Fort Frederick, the crowds will be wowed by a spectacle being billed as the David vs Goliath of enduro racing.

Knight, a three-time world champion enduro rider from the Isle of Man, will take on the likes of Tim Young, Altus de Wet, James Hodsen, Brian Capper, Kyle Flanagan, Scott Bouverie, Graham Hedgecock, Wade Young, Kyle Erasmus, Chase Orsmond, Dwayne Kleynhnans, Jody Engelbrecht, Richard van der Westhuizen and Taki Bogiages. There will also be an ICE support class for any local rider who feels he is “Man” enough to take on the route.

“Bringing the action to the people is a worldwide trend and ICE is all about creating a spectator frenzy in the CBD,” said Red Cherry Adventures race organiser Mike Glover. “With a 1.3km loop and massive man-made and natural obstacles, the spectators are guaranteed to be entertained.”

The ICE event forms part of the annual Urban Run weekend taking place from the Donkin Reserve and features Redbull extreme rider Brian Capper giving an exhibition between 10:15am and 10:30am. The enduro riders will practise on the route from 11:30am whilst the kids’ Urban Run for those 14 years and under starts on the Donkin at 12 noon. Capper returns to the Donkin for a second extreme exhibition at 12:45pm before the kids’ urban run prize giving with Moaz the Clown. The first round of the ICE eliminator starts at 1:30pm and should not be missed. Prize giving at Fort Frederick for the enduro riders takes place at 5:30pm from the Redbull stage.
