Capper Conquers NiteX Enduro

Brian Capper has literally ended the year on a high note!  On Saturday 14th of November, the Redbull biking superstar participated in the final round of the NiteX at the Bikers Warehouse in North Riding, Johannesburg. The NiteX is one of the biggest races in South Africa; it is a night enduro race – A first in South Africa.

Together with his teammate and prodigy, David Goosen (who has been signed for Capper’s 2016 team), Capper conquered the three races of the championship: He won the first and final race, while the second race was won By Goosen.

The Enduro NiteX is a spectacular championship night race that has taken place in five rounds; the race took place on a challenging course that was designed by Mike Puzey. After a tough race, the formidable South African, Redbull champion, Brian Capper, and his team came out victorious.
