Nedbank Cycle Challenge to hit Windhoek
Local cyclists will have a mammoth task to overcome on Sunday when they pedal it out in the 24th edition of the Nedbank Cycle Challenge here in the capital.
The aspiring cyclists will compete in the 20km, 35km and 75km
categories, starting in front of Nedbank's head office in
Independence Avenue and finishing at the Cohen Fistball Club near
the SKW Sport Ground in Olympia.
Speaking at the launch on Tuesday, Nedbank Managing Director
Erastus Hoveka said the event, which started in 1986 had grown in
leaps and bounds and attracted a record 1 500 participants during
the 2007 edition.

Hoveka said he was confident that the cycling event would
attract a huge following this time around following the
introduction of the 20km section for family teams.

The biggest growing sporting event will once again showcase the
talents of cyclists from Oshakati in the Oshana Region.

The cyclists' expenses will be covered by Windhoek Pedal
Power.

"Since its inception, the Nedbank Cycle Challenge has become the
biggest fun and fitness event on the Namibian sporting calendar in
terms of participation," said Hoveka.

"It is an event that has spurred enthusiasm, potential and
excitement year after year not only amongst staff, but also amongst
clients and non-clients," he added.

Cyclists competing in the 75km race will have the challenge of
beating last year's champion Dan Craven's record time of one hour
and 50 minutes.

Johanita de Waal won the women's race over 70km followed by
Charmaine Shannon and Angelique Rall, while Simon Shileka from
Oshakati won the 35km race.

Nedbank Communication & Sponsorship Manager, Gernot de Klerk
said that all participants would be presented with medals while the
winners in the respective categories would receive cash prizes.

Interested persons are thus advised to get registration forms
from any Nedbank outlet.

Hoveka thanked Nedbank co-sponsors namely Old Mutual Namibia,
Mutual & Federal Namibia, Windhoek Pedal Power, Namibia
Beverages (Coca-Cola), Namibia Health Plan and Radio Wave for their
individual contributions.

Cyclists who have not yet registered can still do so at the
registration point on Saturday, at the Cohen Fistball Club.

The event starts at 08h00 on Sunday and will once again be
preceded by a Kidz Cycle Challenge on Saturday, for children under
the age of six.
