Cape Town is playing host yet again to the country’s largest action sports and lifestyle event, the Hunters eXtreme Ultimate X 2014 festival, which will take place on Saturday 01st of February 2014. The Gateway Canal at the V&A Waterfront will be transformed once again into an extreme sporting paradise filled with death defying stunts and tricks, performed by the best of the best action sport athletes from BMX, FMX, MTB, skate and wake boarding that SA has to offer.

The event, which is in its fifth year, expects thousands of sports-loving spectators to attend the day-long festival in the Mother City. Gates open at 10am and close at 9pm, followed by an after party which starts at 7pm on site with top local DJ’s and bands playing into the night.

Markus Museler of Old School Productions, founder and visionary of Ultimate X had the following to say, “We’ve really stepped things up this year to stage an action sports event that meets international standards. With record crowds and unbelievable performances from local and international athletes, this is without a doubt the most unforgettable Ultimate X to date.”

Watch international competitors in action like Alastair Sayer (FMX), Paul Ryan (BMX), Jordan Elizondo-Darwin (wake) and Moses Adams (skate) plus extreme local stars such as Mike Oyston on FMX; David Rigby on BMX; skater Ant De Mendonca; wakeboarder Melissa Colborne and on the MTB trial, Andrew Guess.  The country’s best riders in each discipline will compete for a piece of R120 000 in cash prizes and the title of Hunters eXtreme Ultimate X champion.

Mike Silver, of experiential marketing partner Stretch, said that this year’s festival would be bigger and better than ever before, “We are taking things to the next level this year. Spectators can expect to be amazed with some of the largest ride infrastructure ever seen in South Africa with other incredible stunts and offerings on the schedule, the festival this year will not disappoint,” said Silver, who together with Old School Productions, conceptualised and executed the festival since it kicked off five years ago.

New to Ultimate X in 2014 is the introduction of the Cross Country Ultimate Eliminator. This is a new heat racing format from the UCI World Cup and will combine the top riders in the country from across various cycling disciplines as they battle it out along the explosive straights and over technical obstacles in order to be crowned the ultimate champion.

Junior Brand Manager Ben van der Merwe says of Hunters involvement, “We are really excited to be on board for a second year in a row with the Hunters eXtreme Ultimate X festival. We look forward to another extremely successful event and are proud to be associated with a festival that brings action sports to fans across the country!”

    Ultimate X means living beyond your limits

  7. Charl Lingenfelder says:

    Other than small competitions at our local skateparks or shopping malls, we never get to witness a big extreme sports event. Ultimate X brings it all together in one massive, well organised event. Growing bigger and getting better every year, it is really one that you wouldn’t want to miss, and always worth going back to!

    And of course, it brings back memories of tearing up primary school and shopping mall rails and ledges when we were kids.

  8. Matt says:

    It is one of the only chances we in SA can experience and watch some world class and local xtreme sports stars!

  9. Robbie Evans says:

  10. Grant Cohen says:

    We all need a wake up call and a bit of excitement to get the year off to an amazing start, by FEB we will be calling for December already! What better way to keep us going than seeing guys pulling off the sickest tricks ever! Keep my heart going and let me see these machines in action

  11. Tawrieq says:

    Ultimate X is an event like no other in Cape Town, truly unique and for young and old to enjoy.
    Nowhere else will you find the countries & also some of the worlds best Xtreme athletes battling to entertain the crowds more than actually going for the main prizes (although who wouldn’t want to be the best Ultimate X athlete). So you know you in for a real treat when you attend the event?

    Ultimate X will simply just blow your mind with all that is on offer and I most certainly cannot wait to attend again this year. This has become somewhat of a tradition now for me and my lil guy so please send us down so we can go mental checking out the FMX & BMX boys doing there thing.
