Downhill MTB Champ Andrew Neethling and the Nissan X-Trail

Andrew Neethling is a South African journeyman, champion, pioneer and ambassador of the downhill world cup mountain biking scene. He takes us back to where it all started at the foot of the Helderberg mountains.

Andrew has recently returned to where it all started - Helderberg, Somerset West, to open his own bike shop and build and maintain spectacular trails for all enthusiasts to use.

We spent some time with him and in this video, he breaks down what it was like in the early days when he travelled the world with his brother to races and building illegal trails to practice on. 

Now that he has come full circle back to where he started, what is he up to and what are his plans in SA?
