Promising mountain biker Aaron Heyneke is delighted with his role of ambassador with Positive Sports Solutions as he continues to develop his career.
The Grade 10 pupil from Jeppe High School in Johannesburg has made his mark in the cycling discipline with a string of successes in the last two years, including winning the Emperors Classic MTB event in the U16 category in 2017 and 2018.
He is also unbeaten in the Gauteng Youth 16 Spur Series for his school this year.
Now he has joined forces with the South African cycling distribution company, who will offer support in a variety of ways until the end of August next year.
Providing opportunities for promising South African cyclists is one of the key elements of Positive Sports Solutions’ business philosophy.
Besides bringing a range of premium cycling products to the southern African region, the SA distribution company helps talented youngsters in the country reach their potential as top-class cyclists.
Spokesman for Positive Sports Solutions David Pieterse said Heyneke represented the sort of potential they wanted to help develop.
“Aaron is riding a top-of-the-range MTB Trenton V HEAD bicycle and we see great value in having him as part of our set-up,” he said.
“Besides providing exposure for the HEAD brand, this is an opportunity to support our young riders to become the best they can be.”
Having been involved in cycling since he first rode a bike when he was two, Heyneke is delighted with the support he will receive from Positive Sports Solutions.
“I’m very proud that out of thousands of riders Positive Sports Solutions have chosen me,” he said.
“They are making an impact on cycling in South Africa and I am happy with the exposure I will get through this arrangement. I believe it will open up opportunities for me.”
