Following the announcement of the 2013 Resolution Health and Zurreal Ride the Rhino and Race the Rhino mountain bike races, celebrity riders Liezel van der Westhuizen, Joel Stransky, Owen Hannie, Ernst Viljoen, Steve Newman, Gugu Zulu, and Letshego Mosoeu have declared their support and will be participating in the races.
The events, taking place in the Western Cape (Ride the Rhino) and Magaliesburg / Hartbeespoort (Race the Rhino) areas in September, are aimed at raising much needed funds to answer the plight of the rhino and curb the disappearance of the endangered Renosterveld region in the Western Cape. Each participant will be racing in honour of one of the 668 rhinos that were poached in 2012.
