Buffelspoort Dam – Reigning Cross Triathlon Junior Elite Men’s World Champion, Michael Ferreirawill make his XTERRA “long course” debut on Saturday, 21 January 2017 when he takes on the Fedhealth XTERRA at Buffelspoort Dam.

“I took part in my first XTERRA Lite at Buffelspoortin 2014,” says Ferreira. “Although I tried my hand at a couple of road triathlons, I was always a mountain biker at heart. I was able to make a name for myself in the XTERRA Lite Series. In 2017, however, I will be turning 20, which makes me old enough to move on to the long distance XTERRA. XTERRA Buffelspoort will be my first long distance triathlon. I plan to take part in all three XTERRA SA races: Buffelspoort, Nelson Mandela Bay and Grabouw.”
