Leading power tool manufacturer Andreas STIHL (Pty) Ltd has selected its title brand to exclusively associate with Cycling South Africa as the “official outdoor equipment and machinery partner” on several events in 2014.
Cycling South Africa is grateful for the partnership, with an element of the sponsorship package being the supply of STIHL equipment such as blowers and chainsaws. This specialised equipment will be used to clear and maintain tracks and trails for events throughout South Africa. The events will also offer bike wash facilities using quality STIHL high-pressure cleaners.
STIHL will be represented at the Southern African Mountain Bike XCO and DHI Cup Series and Championships, the UCI MTB World Cup in April, the SA Marathon Championships, the UCI Marathon Championships and the Rainbow challenge.
For the first time ever, the Southern African Mountain Bike Cup Series will be streamed LIVE via www.360streamit.tv. This weekend’s race is a UCI category 1 event for the XCO Elite men and women, and a UCI category 2 event for the DHI Elite men. With the first round of the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup series only 4 weeks away, all of South Africa’s leading XCO and DHI riders will be participating to get as many UCI points as possible.
