The 2023 Nedbank Namibia National XCM MTB Marathon Championships will be held at the IJG Trails, at Farm Windhoek tomorrow morning.
The Rock and Rut Mountain Bike Club and Namibian Cycling Federation (NCF) will coordinate the races where more than 60 cyclists will take on the trails in separate divisions for men and women in the following race categories: e-bikes; sub veterans; veterans; masters; juniors; under-16s, and more.
Elanor Grassow of the NCF said they are looking forward tohosting the event.
“We are excited about this edition of the XCM races because, for the first time ever, we will have a national title for the e-bike category for elite men and women cyclists,” Grassow said.
The overall male and female winners in the XCM MTB elite races will obtain valuable Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) points, while they will also receive Namibian national championship titles and jerseys to represent Namibia at international cycling competitions.
Selma Kaulinge of Nedbank Namibia said: “We are gearing up for the Nedbank Namibia National XCM race this coming Saturday and, because it’s the final race before our coveted Nedbank Desert Dash, the event will be nothing short of thrilling. Nedbank Namibia would like to thank each contributing partner for their efforts to make this event a success.”
The races will start at 06h20 with the e-bike category, followed by all the other categories at five minute intervals. More information can be obtained from the NCF at firstname.lastname@example.org
