Parys – 9 October 2011
After taking part in the Adventure Racing National championships for schools, Nicola Giliomee, Ben Giliomee and Brandon Willcocks made their way to Parys to take part in the Crater Cruise Half Marathon MTB 56km race.
The Adventure Race that they took part in just 2 days before was very tough and only 15 of the 35 teams managed to finish the race. With just one day of rest, Nicola, Ben and Brandon showed why they are regarded as some of the best upcoming mountain bikers in the country by achieving great results.
Nicola Giliomee – 3rd junior girl (Nicola finished the National Mountain Bike series in 5th place in her category)
Ben Giliomee – 12th junior boy (Ben finished the National Mountain bike series in 5th place in his category)
Brandon Willcocks – 12th junior male (Brandon finished the National Mountain Bike series in 12th place in his category)
In the local 2011 SWD league, Nicola ended in 1st place in the Junior Women category and Benjamin 2nd in the Youth Boys category.
Congratulations to the riders on these great achievements.
