One lucky rider will take home a Specialized Voucher to the value of R10 000 on completion of the revered 2019 FNB Magalies Monster MTB Classic that will take place at the ATKV Buffelspoort on Saturday, 01 June 2019.
According to Kate Whitehead, Marketing Coordinator at Specialized Bicycles Africa, the FNB Magalies Monster MTB Classic caters for all mountain biking enthusiasts including the racing snakes, weekend warriors and newcomers to the sport. “This is great because Specialized has a wide variety of bikes that speak to each of these riders. We love this event so much, that we even threw in a kids test fleet,” says Whitehead. “With the addition of the Kids Race and the already popular FNB Platinum Trail run it’s a fantastic weekend away for the whole family, and what better way to spend your weekend than with like-minded people. By offering a voucher as a lucky draw prize the winner is able to visit our retailers to choose a Specialized product that best suits his/her needs.”
“As our head office is in Stellenbosch, we will be relying on our Market Developer for the Northern territory, Werner Roux to be flying the Specialized flag when he takes on the mighty Monster,” continues Whitehead. “A few of our Gauteng retailers have also signed up for the challenge. We wish them the best of luck. In addition to the West Rand Cycles tech zone, we will be keeping all the little ones busy with our test fleet of kid’s bikes at the event. The FNB Magalies Monster is a fun family weekend away, there just happen to be bikes involved.”
