Last year’s winner Anthony Jeanjean (France) and Daniel Sandoval (USA) will feature in the BMX competition, with Jeanjean excited at the prospect of defending his title.

With local names like Khule Ngubane and Olympic skate hopeful Brandon Valjalo on the roster, there will be no shortage of talent in the BMX and skate competitions.

“Last year I had an amazing time at Converse ULT.X and got to see a lot of Cape Town. I’m very much looking forward to coming back this year,” says Jeanjean. “It’s going to be epic.”

But it’s not just about the action sports – with musical entertainment and family-friendly activities in the mix, Converse ULT.X 2024 offers something for everyone including an athlete signing session.

Tickets for the main event are R250. Visit ultx.africa for more information.
