The Nelspruit-based friends have reunited to ride in the colours of the New Africa Developments (NAD), a company that pioneers retail property developments in South Africa.
Combrinck and Bell have set their sights on taking the African leaders’ jersey at the Absa Cape Epic.
“I am very excited to race with my long time friend on a team. It is a huge opportunity for us to showcase our talent and stake our claim in the stage racing scene in South Africa,” said Bell.
Bell’s individual goal is a top 20 finish at marathon worlds, and he will also focus on the national marathon series races, where his teammate will be one of his major rivals.
While Bell will also concentrate on ultra marathon distances, Combrinck will be gearing up for the major stage races.
