The Nedbank Cycle Challenge will not take place this year and will resume in February next year, the headline sponsors said yesterday.

In a statement, Nedbank Namibia said the initial decision to postpone the race in February was made in the wake of the untimely passing of president Hage Geingob, and for the solemn observation of both the period of national mourning and Geingob’s timeless legacy.

The organisers have been unable to find an alternative date this year due to a packed schedule.

“We were hopeful of rescheduling the race for 21 April 2024, however, the increasing logistical demands of our commitment to the extensive array of sponsored cycling races, including national and international races hosted locally, coupled with the commencement of our other logistics-heavy sponsorship properties like the Nedbank Kapana Cook-Off and Nedbank for Good Series, compromises our intent to host a peerless Nedbank Cycle Challenge quite significantly,” Nedbank stated.

“The necessary teams have been engaged to ensure a smooth logistical process of refunding cyclists who had initially entered into the Nedbank Cycle Challenge and furnish information on the new date in February 2025.”
