South African mountain bike marathon champion Kevin Evans will make his DUESOUTH XTERRA debut on 8 July 2010 when he takes on the DUESOUTH XTERRA Knysna  presented by REHIDRAT® at the magnificent Pezula Private Estate.

According to Evans, XTERRA Knysna will be his very first off-road duathlon.  “I use to race road duathlons when I was still at school and really enjoyed it.  I live between Knysna and Plettenberg Bay so I am familiar with all the mountain bike routes in the surrounding area.  I am not too sure what to expected from the run disciplines though and will just have to take it as it comes.   I have only heard good things about XTERRA, so I decided to give it a go.  My plan is to just have fun,” says Evans. 

XTERRA Knysna is the only DUESOUTH XTERRA event that does not feature a water discipline.  Athletes can participate individually or in teams of two.
