With just under one week to go to the start of the 2014 FNB Magalies Monster Mountain Bike (MTB) Classic presented by ISUZU event organisers are excited to welcome Craft Functional Sportswear as the official ON-BIKE Partner of this much anticipated event.

“Craft is a premium brand that provides premium on bike clothing and equipment,” says Michael Meyer, Director Stillwater Sport & Entertainment.  “As a leading sport marketing company we are focused on hosting well organised sporting experiences in South Africa.  We are elated to welcome Craft as the official ON-BIKE Partner of the FNB Magalies Monster MTB Classic and look forward to hosting the most exciting event yet”.

According to Raoul de Jongh, General Manager Craft South Africa, Craft’s expertise in designing sport-specific garments for optimal function comes largely from a long and fruitful collaboration with elite athletes across the globe.  “For four decades, the name of our game has been the provision of optimal performance through functional sportswear.  At Craft, we believe in producing the best functional sportswear in the world. We wanted to take this approach to the race calendar for cycling in South Africa for the next few years and work with the best races in the country, if not the world”.

“The FNB Magalies Monster MTB Classic is without a doubt one of the best one day cycling events in South Africa,” continues De Jongh.  “We are excited to be part of the action, providing athletes with the best gear to achieve their goals in this gruelling one day challenge.  We will make more meaningful connections with the athletes taking part in this amazing event. For us, the next few years are about taking Craft to every athlete in a meaningful way, by being a part of special events like this one”.
