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 49 year old adventure and outdoor lifestyle enthusiast. The second solo Fatbike adventure took place along the South East Coast of South Africa between Jeffrey’s Bay and Cape Town, in February 2017.
Now, the 50 K a Day Challenge has become an annual event and the third instalment of this epic challenge will take place on the tropical coast line of Mozambique between Maputo and Beira.
The 50 K A DAY TV production will be broadcasted on The Bike Channel Italy, Africa Sport Report in 35 African countries as well as on Wild TV Africa on the Wild Ride MTB program, be sure not to miss this epic TV adventure.
