THE second KZN District BMX Race was held at the Burry Stander Bike Park on Saturday. Although racing started at 10am, children were already lining up outside the gate at 6am.

A total of 115 riders from various schools participated.
“We invite the schools to send their pupils to participate in BMX racing,” said organiser, Mandie Stander who also said refreshments are provided to the children.

“The excitement on the children’s faces make all the effort well worth. Once again, we need to teach these children safety aspects at an early age. With all our project through the year, if we can change the mindset of a few, it would be worth all the effort,” said Stander. She thanked Tyrone Johns and his team from KZN Cycling for teaching the young hopefuls how to ride a bicycle and the importance of wearing a helmet.

“Another big thank you to the KZN sports department for attending as well as all the sponsors. Without assistance, events like this will not be possible,” said Stander.
