Fedhealth MTB Challenge: 3rd-4th September 2016

06 Sep 2016

We had 10 of our BMX boys & girls take part in the 5km kids race on the Saturday at the Fedhealth MTB Challenge. Their excitement for the race as well as the opportunity to visit Meerendal and be a part of the action was great to see and a real treat for them.

Two of our older MTB boys and I rode with the kids to keep an eye on them, making sure that they stayed motivated and finished the race. We also wanted to make sure that we were there to help if they had any mechanical problems along the way. Luckily, everything went smoothly and there were no problems.

 The kids raced right from the start and it was so cool to see how serious and competitive they took the race with Zizo finishing 1st and Lakhanya 3rd. We had few boys and girls from our group that made the the top 10 and their pride was very obvious.  It's really great to have kids races like this and I am really looking forward to taking our BMX kids to more of these fun mountain bike events as it gives them the chance to ride different discaplines and decide which they prefer.
