Let There Be Light! Jacques Marais

'Extreme Lights' ... the name says it all. My shoot last week with Charl, Hannes and their crew made me realise rather suddenly how pathetic my current MTB lights are, and that LED technology has advanced with leaps and bounds in the three years since I purchased my kit. The good news is that this Stellenbosch-based company also supplies trail runners, 4x4 enthusiasts and a whole range of other outdoor, high performance lighting needs as well. For more information, visit them at www.extremelights.co.za or check out their Facebook Page /extremelights The 4x4 routes and new mountain biking single-track on Helderberg Farm (www.helderbergfarm.co.za) - courtesy of master trail builder Jan Van Schalkwyk - proved a dramatic backdrop for the shoot. If you've not ridden your bike here lately, go check it out and - if you're brave enough - let gravity go wild along the latest WP Provincial DH Track. Just like the lights, this is pretty 'extreme'!  Jacques Marais
