Trans Baviaans 2019 – Before The Repeat

TB1

Vrek-lekker #InFood #coffee at #Handelsmark in #patensie at dawn on my#Repeat Mission into the #baviaanskloof wilderness area to shoot @EcoBoundEvents #TransBaviaans2019 - real #lifesaver! It’s all systems go at #Bergplaas, the halfway point during what many rate as the “toughest single-day #mtb Stage Race” in the world. Huge thanks to #IGEN Internet Providers, #GardMed Event Medics, #CraftedCycles Bike Mechanics who are already set up and ready to receive the racers after the infamous #MAC, or ‘Mother of All [...]

Ozone Tourism Activation Project – Done

Gam2

Yo-yo-yo #Kouga, what’s next on the @adventure menu. Ended off a stunning week in #jeffreysbay after some wilderness play at #BergRiverEcoResort, #Pabala, #Crossways and the #FerryHotel in the gorgeous #Gamtoos Valley. There’s too much to mention, in between #tuktuk fun, #sandboarding, #horseriding, waterfall #hiking, great #Cuisine and down-home hospitality. Tomorrow, it’s back to business for the OZone Crew as we tackle the EcoBound Mountain Events #TransBaviaans2019 Repeat Lekker to have another #oZoneAfrica Project in the bag, with #IsuzuSA driving our road trip!

Ozone Tourism Activation Shoot – Kouga

Kouga

A day spent in the mountains always feeds the soul. And if those mountains happens to be the rugged ranges skylining below the craggy #CocksCombpeaks, all the better. The only downside here has been that the #oZoneAfrica crew only had one night at #MountIngwe Lodge on the remote #ElandsRiver road. A #BoerWarMuseum, #mtb trails, great #hiking and #4X4 routes, cycad forests, and dozens of nightjars punctuating the dead-still night [...]

Trans Baviaans 2019 – The Race

TBV3

As usual, being part of the kickass media team at the annual EcoBound Mountain Events #TransBaviaans means a long day of tripping through the Kloof capturing the action, followed by a night of zero sleep as you plug away at the thousands of visuals. The worst part personally is seeing the riders cranking through this incredible World Heritage [...]

Trans Baviaans 2019 Registration #2

TBV2

Once you’ve conquered the #MAC - or if you will, the #MotherOffAllClimbs, that pesky little ascent that’s been bothering you since you pedalled off the start line in #Willowmore - you’ll be so close to #Bergplaas you should be able to smell the lekker soup There are a couple more kilometers of gentle up-up-up, though … this is the Ecobound Mountain Events #TransBaviaans #MTB Marathon, [...]

Around the Pot 100 Miler MTB – the race

ATP

Super-quick post as we gear up for the #AroundThePot #100miler prize giving here in the glorious #overberg. The riders had to cope with four seasons out there as the day kicked off with a sub-zero chill, before going all switcharoo between freezing rain, scudding clouds and superbalous sunshine All results are available on the #ATP Social Media platforms and photos will [...]
