DURBAN lad Mncedisi Mkhize - a mountain biking (MTB) buff living his sporting dream. And with a list of goals to reach as a participant of this growing sport, this young MTB rider is destined for extraordinary things.

His MTB journey started just a year ago, but Mncedisi is already making waves. The 14-year old KwaZulu Natal lad says his love for mountain bikes and the thrilling, technical aspect of the sport has kept him firmly on the saddle, and the mountainous trails he explores during a race has nurtured his love for nature and the outdoors, which has been a bonus.

And with a jam-packed, diligent four day a week training programme, it’s no surprise that he’s been named one of the Spur Schools MTB League’s rising stars for 2017. This year, Mncedisi scooped top honours in the sub junior boys category in the Spur Schools MTB League regional event, which he describes as a “very proud moment”.

“I’ve always loved mountain biking, since I was a very young boy. But success doesn’t come easy, as with everything. It means you have to train hard to perform well and be dedicated to the sport,” he says.

“My goal is to really just do well in all races,” he says.- Supplied
