‘Pedal power’ fanatics gear up for Mountain Bike Challenge

Avid mountain bikers look forward to yet another exciting expedition once the Standard Bank Klein-Aus Mountain Bike Challenge kicks off at the end of this month.

The much anticipated cycling endurance race scheduled from 29 April to 1 May will be held in three stages in the rocky Klein-Au vista bushveld in the south of the country, known for its mountain bike and hiking trail expeditions.

Sigrid Tjijorokisa, Standard Bank’s Acting Head of Marketing stated that the bank has sponsored N$70,000 this year, because they understand the importance sports plays in the physical well-being of those taking part and at the same time brings communities together to enjoy this adrenaline pumping sports event.

“For the most mountain biking enthusiasts this is not only an adventure, but also a great way to keep fit, we are therefore proud to sponsor the Klein-Aus Vista Mountain Bike Challenge for the 7th consecutive year,” she added.

Surrounded by the splendour of the Klein-Aus terrain, this gruelling race strengthens its participants physically and mentally. There are various categories for men, women and juniors so the whole family can participate. The marathon races range from 12, 33 and 60 kilometres respectively.
