A newly-formed Pietermaritzburg-based cycling academy will be taking a strong squad of young and experienced mountain bike riders to take part in the Euro Steel Drak Descent.

The sold-out Drak event is in partnership with FNB and takes place this weekend.

Gameplan Media reported the Tipping Point/Brink Cycling Academy was launched in December 2021 to offer talented, young and aspiring athletes the opportunity to improve their skills and fitness levels and increase their chances of becoming professional elite category riders.
