The first 50K a Day Fatbike Challenge started off by pure chance.
Wild TV Africa became the media and TV partner for the “Man vs Beast” event between Alexander Bay and Cape Town. Group CEO, Dewald Visser, decided to join the two Ultra Marathon athletes and 3 horse riders on this epic journey. Only difference is he did it on a Fatbike, while he followed the race to Cape Town as a solo rider, getting some great TV footage as part of the TV production.
Not even a weekend warrior, by his own standards, the 50km per day for 16 days in a row, proved to be the ultimate challenge for the 47 year old adventure and outdoor lifestyle enthusiast.
Now, the 50 K a Day Challenge has become an annual event and the next event will take place along the coast between Jeffrey’s Bay and Cape Town, from 12-28 February 2017.
Join him, even if it’s only on Facebook, as they raise funds for a very worthy cause.
The 50 K A DAY production will be broadcasted on Wild TV Africa on the Wild Ride MTB program, be sure not to miss this epic TV adventure.
There will also be daily edits between 12-28 February 2017, so be sure to download the Wild Ride MTB app to follow the adventure.
