Aramex-Songo-Champions Race, Stellenbosch/RSA

Date: 19.03.2014

Description: Short Track

16km, 8 laps, 300m of climbing, 40min
First place in sprint against Lukas Flückiger

It is one of the most special races in the mountain bike calendar. I doubt there is any mountain bike race held in a township in South Africa with so many crazy spectators and pros. The kids were “eating” us!

We initiated this race three years ago, and I never thought that we can grow so much and inspire so many kids. After the race when I left in the darkness our Songo kids were still pinning it non stop racing each other on the bmx track. That was more rewarding to see compare to the feeling of crossing the finish line first.

Thanks to every one who made it happen!
