NEDBANK Save the Rhino 2-Day MTB

Sometimes, my job takes me to spectacularly beautiful places, and this weekend is certainly a case in point. I don’t often hang around golf courses, but the course at LEGENDS Golf & Safari Resort is top of the list if ever you’re planning on shouting at a small, dimpled ball.

The dramatic backdrop provided by the Waterberg and the surrounding bush veldt plains also make LEGENDS the perfect venue for a mountain biking stage race, and this is why I’m up here in Limpopo. The event in question is the NEDBANK Save The Rhino 2-day MTB Ride, and most of today was spent recceing the route (and shooting close encounters with rhinos).

All the riders who have signed up for this … you are in for a spectacular and memorable ride. And uhm … I’m not going to say anything about that monster climb up the Legends Mountain ...
