KIA Mountain Bike series kick off
A total of 144 riders have confirmed their participation, including the defending champion Tristan de Lange. The men’s division also includes KIA’s very own riders, Martin Freyer and Michael Pretorius as well as the likes of Heinrich Köhne, Herbert Peters and Nick du Plessis, who are among the best mountain bikers Namibia has to offer, and they will challenge de Lange for the title. The winner will walk away with a cool N$10,000 in prize money. The woman’s division will see the likes of Irene Steyn and Michelle Voster going head-to-head for the prize money of N$ 7,500.
“The popularity of the race has grown significantly since its launch four years ago, and the contribution of our sponsors, including Kia Motors, Standard Bank, Gondwana Collection and Maerua Superspar, have been key to making the event so successful,” race organiser Piet Swiegers commented.
