A lucky draw for a highly rated Westfalia bike rack, valued at just under R6 000, will be a major attraction for cyclists when the Kremetart cycle road race takes place next month.
Donated by Positive Sports Solutions, company sales spokesman Jaco Smith said the giveaway, valued at R5 999, would take the form of a lucky draw, with all competitors having a chance to put their numbers in a box after the race.
“We will be present at the event and will do the draw, along with emcee Johnny Koen, at the potjiekos and prize-giving,” said Smit.
He added there had been a spike in the cycling fraternity’s interest in the Westfalia carrier option.
“There’s huge interest in a good-quality bike rack at an affordable price and that is exactly what we can offer,” said Smit.
“It’s a German product and if you compare it to any other brands you will notice that it gives you excellent value, and it comes with a five-year warranty.”
He added that Positive Sports Solutions would have a gazebo at the race with a display of their products.
“There will be HEAD bicycles and the Westfalia BC75 ZA bike rack on promotion at the event, so you can view all the products under ‘one roof’.
“We are aiming to create awareness of what we offer and the Westfalia bike rack giveaway is not just about promoting the quality of the product, but also its value [R5 999], which includes VAT and delivery in SA.”
A ride that covers 175km for the elite men and a 140km distance for the elite women is sure to attract some of the country’s top cyclists.
Already the women’s race is set to be well-contested, with Cape Town Cycle Tour winner Kim le Court, South African road champion Carla Oberholzer and Lynette Burger of the Demacon Ladies team competing.
With HEAD Bikes SA as its equipment sponsor, the team has been in dominant form this year, winning multiple events on the South African calendar.
