Entries into the Hi-Tec Walkerbay Xtreme (WBX), a unique adventure sports festival like no other in the country, have opened, and includes what promises to be one of the most scenic and spectator-friendly sprint triathlons on the calendar. We can’t think of a better way to end the tri season!
The WBX will kick off in Hermanus on 29 April, and offers three days of thrills and adventure on the road, in the mountains and at sea.
