Cycling: another event for city’s packed calendar

2008-06-29 00:00

MORE than 200 cyclists braved a chilly morning yesterday to take part in this year’s Engen Dynamic Challenge.

The challenge, sponsored by Engen for the first time, was open to professional cyclists and fun riders over either 104 km or 45 km.

Bradley Potgieter was the winner in the men’s category, taking a prize of R2 500. Chrissie Viljoen was the overall women’s winner.

Potgieter said: “I feel great and proud, especially since this was the first year that I had done cycling professionally. The event was well organised and it has a big potential to grow.”

Brad Bergh, Engen’s corporate sponsorship manager, said: “This event marks the beginning of a new era for Engen. We look forward to what promises to be a successful event that will reward the passion of all cycling enthusiasts.”

Msunduzi marketing manager Brian Zuma thanked Engen for adding to the city’s cycling calendar, which already features the international Intaka Tech World’s View challenge and the Amashovashova event, to be joined by the 2009 Mountainbike World Championships and 2010 BMX World Championships.
