Two lucky 2018 Fedhealth MTB Challenge riders will take home a whopping R10 000 gift voucher (each) compliments of Specialized Bicycles Africa, a proud partner of the 2018 event.
“We are proud to partner with the Fedhealth MTB Challenge in 2018,” says Kate Whitehead, Marketing Coordinator at Specialized Bicycles Africa. “The event is a healthy balance of challenging and rewarding riding, and it caters to a diverse range of riders. The Kids races are especially festive, and a great way to introduce the younger generation to the world of mountain biking.”
“We are excited to offer two R10 000 vouchers as prizes,” continues Whitehead. “Our retailers are at the heart of our brand, we hold them in high regard. By offering the vouchers we are inviting the winners to step into any one of our Concept or Elite stores to choose from a wide variety of equipment and accessories. At the same time they will meet the people behind the brand and build a relationship with them.”
On event day riders can expect to have all of their last minute technical niggles seen to by Specialized Stellenbosch, who will also be out on the course offering technical support at one of the water points.
The Specialized Lucky Draw will take place during prize giving on Sunday, 16 September 2018. To qualify for the prize, contestants need to have taken part in the 2018 Fedhealth MTB Challenge and they need to be present during prize giving to collect their prize.
