The invite-only competition saw eight BMX riders take part in this year’s battle and the finalists each had three, 40 second runs to take the top prize.
“It was super sick to have an event this year, I wasn’t expecting ULT.X to happen at all, it was nice to be able to see everyone, have a good time and walk away with a win!” said Loubser.
There’s no doubt that Capetonians are leading the pack when it comes to incredible athletes paving the way for greater recognition around action sports. Loubser, we’re proud of you!
