songo.info awarded 2 bursaries through Exxaro and RMB

12 Feb 2012


There has been great excitement at songo.info as we heard the exciting news that 2 teams have been selected to be part of the Exxaro Academy for the 2012 Absa Cape Epic.

The opportunity to participate in such a prestigious event as the Absa Cape Epic is a privilege for anyone, no less the songo.info young men where accessibility to such an event is not so easily come by.

To add to the excitement of taking part in the event, is the challenge or rather goal of the Development Jersey and the possibility to stand alongside their heroes and role models of mountain biking, Christoph Sauser and Burry Stander.

The last few weeks and weekends in Kayamandi have been characterised by afterschool & evening training and long, long rides around the Boland and Stellenbosch regions. The guys have been seen coming home after 6pm on their weekend training rides, testament to the committment and excitement to be part of the Exxaro Academy at the Absa Cape Epic.

Their preparation is well underway under the watchful eye of Songo Fipaza, and excitement brewing as we look forward to the upcoming event.

Thank you very much to the Absa Cape Epic, Exxaro and RMB for making these opportunities possible for us.
