The 2017 Tanjung Lesung Enchantment Festival series enters its second day. As an opening, an extreme sports competition targeting athletes and bicycle hobbyists was held. Namely Mountain Bike Cross—one of the competitions competed in the Rhino Cross Triathlon in the tourist area of Tanjung Lesung.

The participants started the race at 08.00. They took a 48-kilometer track, which was divided into three parts leap. In this competition, participants from ISSI Pangandaran, namely Chandra Rafsanjani, managed to reach the line finish in the first order. Chandra has previously recorded achievements in the 2011 SEA Games which were held in Jakarta & Palembang. He also won a gold medal at the 2013 SEA Games, which was then held in Myanmar.
