North West Province – Two lucky FNB Magalies Monster MTB Classic riders will take home a whopping R10 000 Specialized voucher and an entry into the 2-day 2018 Origin of Trails MTB Experience compliments of the event’s bicycle partner.

According to Johan Badenhorst, Marketing Manager at Specialized Bicycles Africa, the FNB Magalies Monster MTB Classic is a race with some great challenges, but the rewards are even greater.  “We would like riders to be reminded that Specialized “has their back” when it comes to technical assistance. The tech support at the start and on route will give riders confidence to have the best ride possible without having to worry about any mechanical problems.”

“This year riders can expect to have all their last minute technical issues seen to by West Rand Cycles,” continues Badenhorst.  “They can make last minute purchases before they start their Magalies Monster mission. West Rand Cycles will also be out on the course offering technical support at one of the water points.  We want to build on the relationship that riders have with our stores and have therefore chosen to offer two R10 000 Specialized vouchers as well as two entries into the 2-day 2018 Origin of Trails MTB Experience  (Western Cape) as our lucky draw prizes.  The vouchers will allow winners the opportunity to choose what they need from a wide variety of equipment and accessories.  Be sure to get your lucky draw number on race day at the prize giving stage, a commentator will announce when.”

The Specialized Lucky Draw will take place during prize giving on Saturday, 02 June 2018.  To qualify for the prize, contestants need to have taken part in the 2018 FNB Magalies Monster MTB Classic and they need to be present during prize giving to collect their prize.
