Capetonian beauty to compete in Namibian Cycle Challenge

Ready, steady, GO! The HvW MTB Cycle Challenge, the new addition to this year’s Huisgenoot Hart van Windhoek, offers  five different entry categories, namely the 1km toddler and pushbike, 5km kids, 20km family, 35km intermediate and a 65km challenge, making the day that more exciting. Huisgenoot Hart van Windhoek and Mannie’s Bike Mecca presents a Cycle Challenge race for both young and old, a race that will take place on Saturday 6 September 2014.

This electronically timed cycle race will start and end at the Doc Jubber sports grounds, where the annual Huisgenoot Hart van Windhoek festivities will take place. Former Miss South Africa finalist, actress and the face behind numerous health awareness campaigns, Vanessa Haywood, will be joining cycling legend Mannie Heymans at the HvW MTB Cycle Challenge. She will also take part in the race.

To encourage team spirit and sportsmanship amongst cyclists, prize money to the value of N$30 000 will be up for grabs. A lucky draw will take place, with prizes consisting of a 4-team entry to the FNB Desert Dash for the 35km intermediary race and an overall challenge prize – two return tickets to Cape Town to take part in The Argus race. If you can’t make the Argus, your tickets can be transferred to any other time. All winners must be present to collect prizes. The entry costs start from N$20 and includes a ticket to attend Saturday’s Huisgenoot Hart van Windhoek festivities.

This is indeed a day you and your family should not miss out on! Find your digital entry form here:
