The celebrity crossover event is set to return with even more punch than last year.

This year the Oakley X-Over looks to be jammed with top South African sports celebrities, all vying for the coveted trophy, as well as the honour of winning such a prestige event.

The Oakley X-Over consists of a golf tournament, a mountain biking race and a surfing event, set in and around the JBay Winterfest.

“It’s one of my favourite events of the year,” said Oakley X-Over stalwart Bob Skinstad. “It’s a great time of year to be in JBay, the town is buzzing with the JBay Open surfing, and I’m looking forward to competing in the event again.”

The Oakley will take place on the 20-21 July, starting with the golf tournament at the St Francis Bay Links Golf Course. This will be followed by the Mountain Bike event that will take place on the JBay MTB Open route.

The surfing tournament will take place at Lower Point in JBay, arguably the most popular of the three disciplines.

The Oakley X-Over Challenge is one of the most popular events of the JBay Winterfest, and there will be a full production crew attending the event for the TV show that will air later on in the year.
