The two-man team paired up mid-way through the 2016 season and will continue to race together through 2017 as Imbuko Freewheel Cycology.
The goal will be to go for a podium position in the African Competition.
Rebello has raced the Attakwas where he finished in the top 10. He also fared well in the National MTB Series racing the Grabouw and Sabie legs and is currently wearing the U23 leaders jersey.
A strong second position at the recent Tankwa Trek highlighted that his build up to the Epic is on the right track.
Due to family commitments, Wolhuter was unable to race the Tankwa Trek and continued his build up at the PEPlett where he managed to again finish in second. He also took second at the Simonsberg Contour.
“Our team will be unique in that Dylan and I will ride different bikes, but both race under the Imbuko Wines banner,” said Wolhuter.
“Dylan has a long-standing relationship with Momsen Bikes whilst I have one with Freewheel Cycology and Specialized. Dylan will race the Momsen Vipa and I will be aboard the Specialized Epic World Cup.”
Imbuko Wines recently announced their return as the headline sponsor and managing director Theunis van Zyl is excited to again be involved.
